Physical vapor deposition technology (PVD) has been used extensively for decorative purposes in numerous applications where scratch and wear resistance are important to ensure a perfect look for an extended period of time and intense use.
Decorative PVD coatings can be used in different appliance areas, for example: door and window hardware (handle, locks), writing components, surgical equipment, furniture accessories, glass and ceramics objects, nautical accessories, mobile telephone accessories, illuminating engineering components, automotive components, fashion accessories, sports accessories, glasses and watch cases, kitchen accessories, flatware, costume jeweler The advantages of decorative coating:
Longer life time
Many bright, metallic colours
Excellent scratch protection
