Vacuum/Vapor CoatingVacuum coatings use technology to create a sub-atmospheric pressure environment and an atomic or molecular condensable vapor source to deposit thin films and coatings. The vapor source may be from a solid or liquid surface (physical vapor deposition - PVD), or from a chemical vapor precursor (chemical vapor deposition - CVD).
Four Lehigh engineers report a previously unknown property for GaN: its wear resistance approaches that of diamonds and promises to open up applications in touch screens, space vehicles and radio-frequency microelectromechanical systems.

I am interested in coating PVC foam boards with paint. I heard that vacuum coating is a process that will work for this application. Can you direct me to a company that can either supply the equipment to vacuum coat, or provide the service to vacuum coat? Are you aware of any other methods that could be used to coat these boards?
