Physical Vapor Depostion / PVD Gold Coating Machine / Jewelry PVD Gold Plating
IPG gold is short saying of Interior Plating Gold, it is the PVD process to deposit solid Au gold metal in vacuum environment to get purity and high quality thin films on product surface. Espically for high value of jewelry and luxury cosums like watches, pens, handbags, belts etc.
When it comes to jewelry, there are several different processes and materials that can be used to achieve a gold look. From rings to watches and everything else in between, the two most common ways to get that is with Gold PVD plating method.
Firstly, what is PVD?
Physical Vapor Deposition, or PVD, is a vacuum coating process that produces a brilliant decorative and functional finish. PVD utilizes a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable coating. PVD coatings are more resistant to corrosion from sweat and regular wear than elecetrol plating gold.
One of the advantages of gold-plating is that it gives the product the look of real gold. On the other hand, gold plating doesn’t offer the durability of gold PVD coating and when scratched can reveal the base material.
