PVD Chrome Vacuum Metallizing Machine, Hexavalent Chrome (Cr6+) Electroplating Replacement
Customers love bright, shiny and metallic look of chrome finishing for the consuming products, either bathroom fittings, faucets or to car bumpers bright metal finishes are everywhere.
Traditionally these parts are Chrome Electroplated, Chrome plating as a stable, excellent shiny decoration, corrosion prevention and abrasion wearing film surface treatment, in the last decades, it extensively be used for many industries. However, the hexavalent Chrome (Cr6+) electroplating damaged health of operators and ruined our environment. So, trivalent Chrome (Cr3+) was used to taken place of the (Cr6+) plating. With the higher requirement of quality and lower production cost demands by manufactures, now, an alternative solutions to replace expensive cost of (Cr3+) electroplating, the most important is without negative health impact and environmentally hazard effluence has been required.
When this subject come to PVD, it solved. Royal Technology has designed and developed the standardized PVD coating equipment used for various substrate materials: ABS, ABS + PC, PA, Brass, Brass Alloy, Metal Steel, Zinc Alloy, Aluminum and Aluminum Alloy etc. With the PVD chrome processing, it changed the traditional process treatment in automotive industry, transportation vehicles, clocks, tooling instruments, hardware, bathroom and kitchen appliance and other many parts need protective layer and aesthetic coatings.
PVD chrome coating benefits:
1. Environmetally friendly: the whole process is clean, totally free of chemical emmissions;
2. High aesthetic finishing with a brilliant metallic looklike;
3. High hardness, resistant of abrasion and corrosion, durable; high uniformity; adjustable thickness through proper coating recipes and operating processes 4. High repeatability, fast cycle time, more economical products.
5. Wide range of finishes: mirror, glossy and matt; brightness from see-through to semi-transparent, to full coverage -mirror finishing ;
6. Large variety of subtrates, greater flexibility and choice in product design;
7. Safer for operators;
8. Stable, operators use the machine 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
9. High yield;
RTAC1616-SPDC PVD metalizer is designed to replace the electroplating chrome process, it is
equipped with multi-arc vacuum coating sources and DC sputtering cathodes, which available for all plastic and metal substrate products PVD chrome plating.
The PVD plating process is between base and top lacquer thermal heating painting process. We can get high quality of Chrome color, stainless steel color and gold colors.
