For many automotive interior applications, chrome (Cr) plating is used to turn a plastic surface into a metallic finish, making decorative strips and buttons look like true stainless steel interior parts. Cr plating elevates the value of the car interior with its attractive look and feel, like touching a real metal part. For those reasons, it’s been an industry standard for almost a century.

However, Cr-plating technology is also limited. Even with the latest technologies, the color options range only from silver to dark grey, no bright colors. Chrome plating doesn’t provide much wear protection to the parts, whether steel or plastic, so scratches can easily occur.

PVD coatings: wide color range and better wear resistance

The decorative and protective coatings deposited by physical vapor deposition (PVD) can be an interesting alternative to overcome those limitations. PVD offers a larger color portfolio for designers and customers. It also offers improved wear protection and hence durability of the interior parts. The PVD coating also preserves the underlying structure of the base material: a glossy surface stays glossy, a satin surface stays satin.

Benefit from Ionbond’s expertise in PVD automotive coatings

Interested in the benefits of PVD? The surface engineers from Ionbond offer high-quality decorative coatings for automotive interior applications. Ionbond has coating centers in North America, Europe and Asia, equipped with a wide range of PVD technologies.

With our magnetron sputtering and cathodic arc deposition PVD technology, we can deliver wear-resistant ceramic nitride, carbo-nitride or oxide coatings with a thickness between 0.2µm and 3µm. This huge variety of coating materials creates a color range from light silver to deep black and light gold to copper. Even rainbow colors and blue are possible.
