PVD Processing with a Southern California Company
For substrates that require physical vapor deposition (PVD) processing, Industrial Polishing Services, Inc. leverages a strategic alliance with a nearby supplier. We seek to provide an all-in-one, complete solution for PVD processing that meets the quality assurance standards of all our in-house finishing services.
The PVD Process
The PVD process involves the deposition of zirconium nitride, titanium nitride or other metallic ion combinations under vacuum conditions. The PVD process is known to enhance the surface hardness of a component, as well as increase the durability and overall abrasion resistance. It’s a practical finishing application that’s an ideal marriage of aesthetics and benefits.
To achieve proper finishing, some substrates need to be electroplated first with nickel and chromium before they can have PVD applied. We ensure these materials are treated appropriately before they head for PVD processing. Then, when it comes time for the actual finishing treatment, we offer a variety of options and colors, including brass, gold, black, gray, silver, nickel and others.
