While physical vapor deposition has been around for decades in other industries, it has recently gained immense popularity in automotive industries.
A light, durable and environmentally friendly wheel finish, physical vapor deposition boldly stands apart from traditional chrome plating that is known for pitting, peeling and utilizing harmful chemicals.
Physical vapor deposition is not only up to 50% lighter in coating weight, but it is also considered to be 100% environmentally friendly as it is free from hazardous materials and produces no hazardous waste. So in addition to adding to your car’s fuel efficiency, PVD stands up to the elements and yet is healthier for the environment.
As more and more consumers are seeking out products that benefit—rather than harm—the planet, physical vapor deposition is sure to become a mainstay in the chrome wheel industry.
The best news is that you aren’t making any performance sacrifices by choosing an eco friendly chrome plating option.
PVD is an improved, state of the art process compared to the tradition chrome plating methods. With warranties lasting much longer than chrome plating warranties due to PVD’s unparalleled durability and with coating options that look just as sleek and shiny as other chrome plating, the result is optimal, light, cost effective and durable enough to withstand even the harshest elements.
Originally developed for the aerospace industry, PVD’s environmentally friendly capabilities are due to the fact that it is a powder coating. In contrast to chemical and galvanic surface treatment methods, PVD’s eco-friendly technology is quite literally a breath of fresh air. With no hazardous materials involved PVD is a clean, dry process. Because of this, PVD does not require any environmental licenses and it conforms to all environmental legislation.
