HOW IS PVD COLOURED STAINLESS STEEL MADE? COLOURED WALL SCREENS
PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) Titanium Ion Plating which improves the performance of stainless steel by increasing wear, scratch and corrosion resistance making its durability far superior to conventional coating methods.
PVD coated coloured stainless steel is widely used in the creation of sculpture, architecture decoration, jewellery, phones and is used for interiors and exteriors metal decoration.
PVD Coating – a Spectrum of Colour Options and Corrosion Resistance Surface
Original Stainless Steel Surface Simply Silver with Hairline NO.4 Mirror Etched Embossed Surface Finish. But there are a rainbow of colour which can be achieved through the Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) Process.
Process of PVD Color Coating
1.Cleaning The Stainless Steel Sheet
First of all the stainless steel is cleaned to make sure that the coating will bond well.
2. PVD Process
The Stainless Steel is then placed in a vacuum chamber with a argon ions metal; this will be used to create the coating. A high vacuum level is needed in the coating chamber, then a small amount of argon gas is introduced. A high voltage circuit is used in order for the stainless steel and target to bond or adhere. This allows the argon ions to bombard the target to release atoms of the target metal, which are deposited on the stainless steel substrate as the coating.
This PVD process is called sputtering; resulting in the deposition of plasma on the stainless steel surface which gives it its new strength and shine.
3.Finish PVD and PVC Coated and Pack
PVD coloured decorative stainless steel is well used in the architectural and industrial design industry. Examples such as- stainless steel curtain walls, cladding and profiles for hotels and casinos, shopping centres, railway stations and for the facades and fit-outs of high-end retail stores and more.
