    What is the PVD Coating Process?

    The PVD coating process is a highly advanced technique which is designed around delivering a durable and aesthetically pleasing end product.

    • 1

      CLEANING

      To prevent defects, all products pass through our extensive cleaning line before coating. This process includes tanks for cleaning, rinsing and deionising. After cleaning, the products are dried and air deionised.

    • 2

      VACUUM CHAMBER

      Coating begins by placing the metal components into a vacuum chamber inside a cathodic arc PVD machine.

    • 3

      CREATION

      Within the machine, a compound is created and applied atom-by-atom to the component by allowing an electrical arc to vaporise a conductive metal target source and combining it with a combination of gases.
