PVD Coating on Aluminum

Aluminum is widely used in many industries thanks to its lightness and strength. Thanks to its different alloys, aluminum suitable for every situation can be used. 

Thanks to its light weight and high strength, aluminum has a wide range of uses in many industries. Aluminum surfaces can be developed using PVD and various advantages can be obtained. In addition to giving different colors to the aluminum surface, it also increases its durability and corrosion resistance.

Advantages of PVD Coating Over Aluminum

  • Aesthetic look:It offers a wide range of colors in aluminum products with different colors and brightness options.

  • Durability: Although aluminum is a lightweight material, it is quite durable on its own. However, its surface may not be resistant to scratches and impacts. In this case, the PVD coating provides the necessary strength.

  • Corrosion Resistance: Aluminum surfaces may not be as corrosion resistant as stainless steel and may be affected in humid, acidic environments. 

  • Heat Resistance:When aluminum is coated with PVD, it can be made more susceptible to heat treatments. 

  • Eco-Friendly:PVD coating is environmentally friendly. Chemical does not produce liquid or gas products.

Areas of Application of PVD Coating on Aluminum

  1. Automotive Industry: Aluminum alloy wheels, door handles, exterior mirrors and other trim parts are coated to give durability and aesthetic appearance. 

  2. Kitchen utensils:Aluminum pots, pans and other kitchen utensils are made to last longer with PVD. 

  3. Electronic: The surface of laptops and smartphones made of aluminum can be made durable with hard coatings. 

  4. Lighting Industry: Lighting is one of the areas where aluminum is the majority. Lighting fixtures, lamp bodies, led lamps can be coated with different colors.
