A vacuum deposition process used to create thin metallic or ceramic films on objects for decoration. This process is an environmentally friendly alternative to chrome plating. Coated products also have an anti-static property after coating when using a metallic film layer. A range of colors can be created depending on the evaporation target used. These coated parts have a matte or gloss metallic appearance, while being lighter weight and lower cost than 100% metal parts, with the same high-quality surface finish, as the total coating thickness is 2% metal and 98% polymer clear coat. Parts go through a pre-treatment process to clean and prepare them for the vacuum chamber, where the metal or ceramic thin film (0.1 µµm or 0.004 mil) is applied. The top coat is then sprayed on and cures to around 80 µµm (3.2 mil) thickness. The maximum part size for this decoration process is 1000 mm (3.3 ft) by 350 mm (1.1 ft). Various colors or brilliances can be achieved depending on the type of metal or ceramic film deposited. Effects such as gradients and fades are also possible. The company complies with ISO 14001 and ISO/TS 16949 for environmental stewardship and manufacturing efficiency. Applications include automotive interiors and consumer electronics.
