What is PVD coating and why your furniture needs it?

The world of décor is evolving each day, but some procedures have been contemporary in the industry. One such process is PVD or Physical Vapour Deposition. DP Laser has been the master of this art. There have been many questions coming to us based on the benefits of getting PVD or what is in the first place.

Today, this blog will talk about PVD and all the reasons why your furniture needs to go through this.

So let’s waste no more time and get started with PVD coated furniture debugging.

What is Physical Vapour Deposition or PVD?

When thin films of one atom or one molecule are deposited on surfaces, the procedure is known as Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD). The process is mostly used on metal surfaces so as to make them durable. The source of the coating is physical that is a solid or liquid instead of chemical as in the alternative coating process of Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD). The process is getting used since the seventeenth century, and even today, its modern versions are used extensively to make surfaces more resistant against various natural as well as human made conditions.

PVD processes are carried out under vacuum conditions. The entire procedure involves four main stages - Evaporation, Transportation, Reaction, Deposition.

Why choose PVD coated furniture?

  • Aesthetics:

    When it comes to stainless steel, you’re not just restricted to only silver. You can choose from a spectrum of colour options. There is an array of shades from which you can select the one which suits your interiors or designs the most. Whatever is your dream shade to go along with hour fantasy can be matched through the Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process.

  • Wear and weather resistant:

    Stainless steel is a solid material, and in our previous blogs, we have already spoken ample about how this substance is one of the most durable ones. PVD though adds on to its resistance, and it becomes more resistant to scratches, grinding, marks and weather conditions. Your furniture will become more durable once you get it coated with PVD. The stainless steel’s original texture and structure is not changed; however, the PVD process not only increases the product’s longevity but also reduces its maintenance.

  • An environmentally friendly process:

    When it comes to making furniture more durable by coating, many other options are available as well. Some of these include, such as electroplating and painting. Though, PVD is one process which is least harming to the environment as well as the surroundings. Unlike these, there are no gases, water waste and other residue released. Also important to note is that the colouring process does not limit the stainless steel's recycling value.

  • Other uses for PVD coated stainless steel

    The Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process is not just restricted to furniture. You can enjoy the benefit of this process for other things too. Some of the best uses are mentioned below:

    • Architectural:

      PVD coloured stainless steel is well used in the architectural and industrial design industry.

    • Transport:

      PVD coated stainless steel can also be used in the transport industry. Examples include ships, panelling on trains, buses etc.

    • Interiors:

      Even small artefacts or showpieces can be coated with PVD if you wish them to turn to some particular shade which matches your interiors. Moreover, this coating will make the piece more durable.

    • Jewellery:

      The PVD process can also be used on stainless steel jewellery – achieving some striking colours.
