PVD Titanium Coating
PVD coating means Physical Vapor Deposition of Titanium, Titanium Aluminium and Chromium. The process is also referred to as Titanium / Titanium Aluminium / Chromium plating. The technology behind PVD coating is based upon the principle of plasma acceleration. The method involves purely physical processes, such as low temperature vacuum evaporation with plasma sputter bombardment.
