PVD COLOURING – THE STATE-OF-THE-ART COLOURING METHOD IN THE MARKET

Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) is a technology for the coating of surfaces. With the help of temperature and atmosphere control, the cathodes’ material like titanium, chrome, silver, etc. vaporizes. Using the effect of electric arc, it is then deposited on the parts’ surface.

  • Ability to coat complex shapes or different materials (brass, plastic, titanium-zirconium, silver, etc.)
  • Highly aesthetic colours, brushed and glossy
  • Durability: high wear and corrosion resistance

With 5 new PVD chambers, GROHE will be able to substantially increase the production by the end of 2018.
