Inthetile, decorative PVD

Decorative PVD is a surface treatment in which a metallic coating is deposited on a ceramic surface, providing it with a thin 0.5 micron layer of titanium, with no changes in the structure of its surface.

These coatings allow to obtain metallic finishes with a wide range of colors (silver, gold, rose gold, aubergine) with excellent mechanical and chemical properties.

PVD coatings are generated with a reduced rate of waste production, substituting more polluting traditional techniques (galvanized, chrome-plated and zinc-plated), a fact that has determined its introduction in the decorative sector due to its environmental respect.

In addition, these coatings have excellent physico-chemical properties, among which we can mention:

  • The metallic finish does not alter over time, due to its oxidation occurring at temperatures above 400 ° C.
  • Resistance to solar radiation (UV), without visible effects or loss of color over time, making it potentially external use if the support ceramic is also suitable for external.
  • Corrosion resistance, but without anticorrosive properties because they are thin-film coatings.
  • Resistance to cleaning products for conventional use, provided they are solutions with a neutral pH.
  • Resistance to hydrochloric acid, acetic acid and citric acid in low concentrations.
