PVD is a coating technology used to deposit a thin film (few microns) on tapware. PVD stands for “Physical Vapor Deposition”.
The finishing process begins inside a vacuum chamber, where different metals like titanium, zirconium and chrome evaporate in a vacuum atmosphere. Due to kinetic energy and a potential difference, ions move on the products surface where they condense creating the desired coating.
PVD coating is particularly recommended for tapware as it allows hardness and is resistance to abrasions, scratches and corrosion. Typically processed with a thin layer, PVD coating offers exceptional aesthetic features as well as guarantees a very long life for the durability.
