The vapor deposition of ultra-pure aluminum, in the high vacuum, in combination with a subsequent protective coating or the application of an HMDSO layer, allows the repositioning of metallic surfaces and comes due to economical and not least ecological aspects, where galvanic coating is dispensed.
This process gives a look to components made of plastic, wood, glass or metal which can visually barely be distinguished from chrome, real gold, brass or any other precious metal. Depending on customer wishes highly reflective or matte surfaces can be realized in all metallic colors.
Seasonal decoration, furniture handles and fittings, curtain accessories, or tins, jars and flacon caps from the cosmetics industry represent only a small part of the application ranges of PVD coating.
The main part of the functional applications is the coating of reflectors for the lighting industry and the automotive sector as well as EMC coating by vapor deposition.
