Stainless Steel PVD Sheet

Stainless Steel PVD Sheet

WHAT IS PVD COATING?
  PVD is the abbreviation of Physical Vapor Deposition. It’s a process to produce a metal vapor (Titanium, Chromium and Titanium Aluminum) that can be deposited on electrically conductive materials as a thin highly adhered pure metal or alloy coating. It’s a process carried out in a vacuum chamber at vacuum using a cathodic arc source.

The coating compounds are made up of various elements such as carbides, nitrides, borides and silicide. The makeup of the compound varies some depending on what the application necessitates. A wide variety of colors can be achieved by adding other gases during the deposition.

WHY CHOOSE PVD COATING?
  PVD coating is one of the best methods for enhancing thin film plating elements. The vacuum deposition method coats the product with a film of hard refractory material 1-2 microns thick.

PVD coatings surpass traditional electroplated coatings, it has superior hardness and wears resistance. Here are the advantages of PVD coating:
  • PVD coating is harder and more corrosion resistant than coating applied by electroplating process.
  • PVD coatings do not discolor or tarnish, and have reasonably high corrosion resistance and do not suffer under UV radiation so easy.
  • More environmentally friendly than traditional coating processes such as electroplating or painting.
  • PVD coatings have excellent wear and abrasion resistance and it’s durable.


WHAT MATERIALS ARE SUITABLE FOR PVD COATING?

  PVD Coating can be used on various materials, such as stainless steel, aluminum, iron, porcelain and certain types of PVC. Stainless steel is the best recommended for PVD Coating, it can be available in a wide range of colors, surface patterns and finishes. Stainless steel will fade and oxidize over time when exposed to the environment, humidity and other factors. However, once stainless steel has been PVD coating, it could be:

  • Will be not so easy to tarnish, oxidize or discolor in harsh sun, salt water or humid environments.
  • Will be impervious to extended UV light exposure, with no flaking, cracking or discoloration.


WHAT QUALITY OF SURFACE FINISH IS REQUIRED FOR PVD COATING?

  The PVD coating will not level or fill like an electroplated finish, so surface imperfections will still be visible after the coating process. That’s why you have to pick one who can supply high quality material for the process. Stanch supply high quality surface finish like grinding finish, mirror finish and other decorative sheets with perfect PVD coating.



WHERE TO USE PVD COATING STAINLESS STEEL?

  PVD colored stainless steel is well used in the architectural and industrial design industry, such as stainless steel curtain walls, cladding and profiles for hotels and casinos, shopping centers, railway stations, airports and for the facades and fit-outs of high-end retail stores.

At the smaller end of the scale the colored stainless steel can be used for anything from display cases, furniture, lighting fixtures, to door handles and taps. The PVD process can also be used on stainless steel jewelry – achieving some striking colors. The PVD colors are various and can be matched with all kind of surfaces, which make jewelry design much copious.



WHY CHOOSE STANCH PVD COATING?

  Stanch PVD coating in an innovation in the creation of colored stainless steel making the surface much harder and more durable than others. The coating deposition method coats the product with a film of hard refractory 1-2 microns thick, but we make it thicker for better wear, scratch and corrosion resistance.


Sample Thickness Comments
C < 100nm Very thin
J < 150nm Thin with rough surface
K < 250nm Acceptable thickness with fine surface
Stanch 300nm Good thickness with finer surface

  Our process improves the performance of stainless steel by increasing wear, scratch and corrosion resistance making its durability far superior to conventional coating methods such as electroplating or other PVD process.

Here we show you the picture of the comparison of coating surface roughness of Stanch PVD coating and other supplier. You can find our PVD coating was much smooth than others.

  Our PVD coating was good on scratch resistant as well. As following test picture, we make a scratch on the surface of sheet by a tolling and observe under the microscope. The bonding of coating layer on C and J samples are not good. The coating chip was observed along the both sides of scratch. K sample is good but the chip still to be found along with the both sides of scotch. Stanch sample has the best bonding, no chip was found.

Here is the reason that you should choose Stanch PVD coating:

  • Low color variation
  • Perfect bonding
  • Perfect coating thickness, ideal for manufacture application
  • Warranty
  • Prefect wear, scratch and corrosion resistance
  • Dry and clean process, environmentally friendly, zero waste residue
