Coating for Piston, Engine, Bio-Compatibility for Medical Devices & More

Improve the Function & Durability of Critical Components

VaporTech coating machines excel at applying titanium nitride (TiN), chromium nitride (CrN), and other functional coatings. Our functional PVD coatings are custom designed to make your product last longer, operate more efficiently due to lower friction, withstand high temperatures, and resist corrosion. They are especially effective for the automotive industry including coating for engine parts, as well as medical devices, firearms, tooling, and more. VaporTech systems create functional coatings only microns thick, suitable for even the highest tolerance parts. VT Functional™ coatings are not just metal, but rather new materials made by reacting chromium, titanium, zirconium, or other metals with oxygen, nitrogen, or carbon. Common coatings include, but are not limited to :

Chromium Nitride (CrN coatings)

Zirconium Nitride
Titanium Nitride (TiN coatings)
Titanium Carbide
Titanium CarboNitride
Titanium Aluminum Nitride
Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC)

VT Functional applications

A VT functional coating can improve the hardness and durability of even the hardest, heat treated steel. Common applications include coating for pistons, machine tooling, engine and chassis components, cutting tools, bio-compatibility with medical devices, energy production, and aerospace. Contact VaportTech at (303) 652-8500 to ask about our Coating Optimization Program, which enables us to customize a coating and process to meet specific functional requirements. We pre-load custom coating recipes into your VaporTech thin-film system and provide detailed coating user guides and on-site training to maximize the value of your investment.
