PVD Coating on Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is one of the most popular and widely used materials for PVD coating. 

PVD Coating is a coating method applied on many surfaces. Due to some of its physical and chemical properties, the material with the most positive decorative results is stainless steel. With its application on stainless steel, decorative, aesthetic and functional needs can be met. In addition, it extends the material life by increasing the surface durability. 

Advantages of PVD Coating Over Stainless Steel

  • Durability: It adds a high hardness and wear resistant layer to the steel surface. This ensures the longevity of the steel parts. 

  • Corrosion Resistance:Stainless steel is already a corrosion resistant material. However, the PVD coating further increases this resistance and protects the steel surface against corrosive environmental conditions. 

  • Aesthetic Diversity:PVD coating provides the application of different color options on the surface. The surface color can be changed without losing the metal appearance or making it artificial. 

  • Easy Maintenance: PVD coated materials are easy to clean. 

  • Environmentally friendly: No harmful by-products are released during PVD coating. It does not cause chemical and harmful gas formation. 

Areas of PVD Coating on Stainless Steel

  1. Kitchen utensils: Utensils such as pots, pans, knives, cutlery can be PVD coated for both durability and aesthetics. 

  2. Watch and Jewelry Industry: It is frequently preferred for aesthetics and durability in luxury watches and jewellery. 

  3. Automotive Industry: In the automotive sector, the performance and exterior appearance of the vehicle are improved with many components such as exhaust pipes, wheel covers, interior trim parts. 

  4. Architecture and Interior Architecture: It gives an aesthetic appearance in construction and architectural projects. 

  5. Medicine, Health and Medical: In medical instruments, the risk of corrosion is reduced, the surface wear time increases, and the service life of the instruments is extended. It can also be used for easy viewing and distinguishing of parts.
