PVD is the acronym for Physical Vapor Deposition, and indicates the technology used to deposit thin metal films over various types of substrates.
The process takes place in vacuum chambers in which the metals to be deposited are evaporated.
Thanks to the kinetic energy they possess and the potential
difference applied to the piece to be coated, the metallic
ions are attracted to the surface of the objects, where
they condense and form the desired coating.
that a physical process creates the finish, giving the item
not only characteristics superior to any other chemical
or electrochemical treatment, but it also guarantees a
perfectly sustainable treatment with a low environmental
impact that’s hypoallergenic and 100% food-safe.
The PVD coatings are particularly well-suited for innovative and advanced technical products that require superior performance in terms of resistance to abrasion, scratching, and corrosion.
A Pearl Chrome version is an elegant aesthetic combined
with advanced abrasion and corrosion resistance! In this
case, to achieve this special finish, it’s important to create
a layer of nickel that evens out the metal surfaces as much
as possible at the microscopic level. After an additional
scrubbing, the item is immersed in the electrolytic chrome solution tank.
Then, using special oils, microbubbles are created that are evenly distributed over the surfaces of the piece to give them a pearly appearance.
