Vapor Deposition

Cathodic Arc Physical Vapor Deposition (CAPVD) -

We use CAPVD to deposit ultra-hard wear-, corrosion- and erosion-resistant thin film coatings on precision parts. This extremely versatile process allows the deposition of pure metals, metal nitrides, carbides and carbo-nitrides as a monolayer, multilayer, graded or alloy film.

We offer titanium nitride as a monolayer or multilayer coating, with a controlled stoichiometry of up to 20 µm coating thickness.

Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) -

During the CVD process, parts and reacting gas are placed in a chamber at a high temperature to form a surface layer coating by absorption or accumulation. The process is commonly used to create nitride and carbide coatings on components.

Typical applications include cutting blades approved by the USDA for meat and poultry processing.

Electron Beam Physical Vapor Deposition (EBPVD) -

Our EBPVD technology allows us to create high-performing thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) with fine columnar microstructures that are highly tolerant to lateral strain.

Typical applications include aero-engine and industrial gas turbine blades and vanes.


Depositing quality coatings

We offer cathodic arc physical vapor deposition (CAPVD), chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and electron beam physical vapor deposition (EBPVD) processes to create coatings of all different materials and structural properties on your most critical components.
