The thin-film coating technique known as physical vapor deposition (PVD) results in coatings made of pure metals, metallic alloys, and ceramics with a typical thickness of one to ten micrometers.
As its name suggests, physical vapor deposition entails physically depositing atoms, ions, or molecules of a coating species on a substrate.
There are three main types of PVD, all of which are carried out in a controlled atmosphere at a lower pressure in a chamber:
Thermal evaporation, sputtering, and ion plating Heat is used to create a vapor that condenses on a substrate to form the coating in thermal evaporation.
Hot filament, electrical resistance, electron or laser beam, and electric arc are all methods of heating.
The coating species and the substrate create an electrical plasma during sputtering. Sputtering and thermal evaporation are basically combined in ion plating.
Coatings made by PVD can be used for many different things; Ceramic resistors and aluminium tracks for electronic circuitry are two examples.
Against intelligent ceramic coatings for optics; decorative plastic coatings; gas turbine blades with coatings that resist corrosion; and coatings for press and machine tools that prevent wear.
The Global PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) ceramic coating market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
The advanced coating architectures of ENDURA coatings offer a variety of PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) surface characteristics that are not possible just with standard coating treatments.
Full coverage of complex, intricate tooling geometries is made possible through the use of specialised equipment, low-pressure plasma treatments, and sputtering techniques are used.
PVD coatings’ primary surface enhancements include exceptional wear and hardness resistance, as well as non-wetting, dry lubrication, low friction, corrosion protection, heat transfer, and thermal oxidation resistance.
