PVD Coating Stainless Steel

PVD-coated colored stainless steel is favored for its luxurious and bright ambiance.

Physical Vapor Deposition is a process that vaporizes solid materials in a vacuum environment and deposits them onto the materials’ surface.

The PVD on the sheet’s surface forms different coatings (oxides, nitrides, carbide), making the color bright, even, and extremely resistant.

PVD coating elevates the natural metal aesthetics of vacuum-dipped Ti for decorative use. The colored stainless steel sheet is commonly used to impart a sense of luxury to decoration, such as cladding, sculptures, medical equipment, etc.

At TOPSON, we have a proven production line of PVD coating. Our specialists can adjust the coating finish to meet client purposes and requirements, including but not limited to custom colors, degree of durability, and other characteristics.

TOPSON is at your disposal to estimate any inquiries for non-standard dimensions.

PVD Coating Finish FAQs

Hairline finish is a polishing craft originated in the Mid-sixteenth century. It is one of the commonly sight brush finishing. Its grinding marks are straight, continuous and long-grain, like the straight hair of women.

Hairline finish has a high smooth and matte surface, widely applied to wall panels and trim, signage, art, decorative panels, etc. It’s more reflective than No.4 polish.

The standard of hairline finish is #180 to #240. Different supplier has different processing capacities. So, it is necessary to ask your supplier whether fabricating a hairline finish which is suitable for a particular application.

Hairline finish is a classic processing technique for metal with extensive applications. You can purchase it from metal manufacturers or metalworking according to roughness and smoothness project requirements.

There are 2 processing methods for hairline finish in different suppliers. Metal manufacturer forms the hairline finish on the metal surface by making the abrasives rotate in the polishing solution. Metalworking has a high finishing technique. They attach abrasive belts to the machine and create the hairline finish by cross-rubbing the metal surface.

One of the biggest reasons metal manufacturers can’t provide a high smoothness finish is that they produce polish in large coils, and it isn’t easy to adjust the grain size. If your project requires highly detail-oriented specifications, metalworking is your best choice.

Hairline is one type of brush finish. Brush finish includes vibration, hairline, stain, No.4, and cross-brushed finish. Their most notable difference is that they have different textures and degrees of finish.

Cross-brushed and hairline finishes are smoother and more decorative, making them popular for architectural decorations. With a matte surface finish, vibration, stain, and No.4 brush finish are commonly used in interior elevators, escalator cladding, and other places that do not require high decoration. Correctly choose the finish according to project requirements!

Materials of PVD coating is including titanium, zirconium, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, and gold, etc.

The depth of the grain determines the application of the metal. The shallow texture is easy to leave fingerprints and smudges. Therefore, it is not suitable for use in high traffic areas or where contact with metal surfaces is required.

Stainless Steel:
Stainless steel requires little repair, but daily touch will leave fingerprints and grease on its surface. TOPSON recommends using Invisible Glass Detergent to clean and Microfiber Cloth to wipe the surface for daily cleaning of hairline stainless steel.

Dawn® and Sprayway® brand glass cleaners may be used to clean stainless steel routinely. If your stainless steel is carelessly tea-staining, Krud Kutter® cleaner can help you.

Brightness and smoothness can affect the aesthetic. You can use a soft cloth dipped in ordinary household white vinegar to maintain it with occasional polishing. Unique polishing product, like Sprayway® or 3M®, is also a good option to regain the brightness of stainless steel.

Copper is one of the most popular decorative materials. The reason copper with corrosion resistance is the patina developed on its surface. Patina is the main factor affecting its color, so you must choose cleaners correctly to avoid damage during cleaning.

Wright’s® Copper Cream is gentle and non-abrasive. Its solid protective performance keeps your copper beautiful for years to come.

Flitz® Brass & Copper Tarnish Remover adopts non-flammable formula, safer than traditional acid-based cleaners. Just spray and rinse to quickly restore a brilliant shine without rubbing.

Aluminum is more easily oxidized than iron but is often used for decoration. Why? The reason is that aluminum products will form a layer of aluminum oxide on the surface to avoid further corrosion. *Can not use acidic or alkaline cleaners. If do that, you will destroy its oxide and lose its protection.

In daily maintenance, mild soap solution is one of the best choices to clean aluminum without damaging the finish. You also can use commercial aluminum cleaners to maintain the materials’ sheen.

Mothers® Mag & Aluminum Polish is a paste that adds a protective coating to aluminum surfaces. You can use it by hand or with a microfiber cloth.

Chemical Guys® Heavy Metal Polish can remove light rust stains from aluminum surfaces. It is suitable to restore aluminum’s sheen.

3D® Superior Metal Polish is one of the best cleaners to remove tough or heavy-duty dirt with little effort. It can restore shine even after long-term corrosion.
