A physical vapor deposition coating system from Vapor Technologies produces a “true black,” low- temperature arc vapor deposition (LTAVD) coating that is designed to be stable, repeatable and customizable, and will not fade or shift. The LTAVD process enables the coating to adhere to a variety of materials, including electroplated plastics, without damaging the part.

Using the L*a*b* color lightness and hue standard, the coating achieves the most accurate quantitative rating in measuring “true” black, the company says. Its high-density adherence characteristics and its ability to withstand dramatic temperature fluctuations are designed to virtually eliminate delamination, cracking and peeling. The coating’s thinness is designed to preserves dimensions, tolerances and underlying detail to enable a variety of textures.

The coating is suited for use on consumer electronics, such as computers and televisions; household products, including countertop appliances, and bath and kitchen fixtures; and automotive interior and exterior accents and accessories; and in large coating services and electroplating operations.
