Ionbond Deco Navi Portrait

IHI Ionbond is pleased to announce a significant investment in our decorative coating capacity: a Hauzer Flexicoat® 1500 PVD system. This large-scale coating system has an impressive coating zone of 0.9m diameter by 1.5m high and is a welcome addition to the growing capabilities of the Ionbond component coating facility at Consett County Durham. The facility already boasts an unrivalled range of technologies, including cathodic arc, magnetron sputtering, advanced HIPIMS and large- and medium-scale PACVD diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating equipment.

UK Flexicoat 1500 PVD

New economies of scale to better serve our customers

The Flexicoat 1500 is equipped with 4 arc sources and 2 unbalanced magnetron sputtering sources. It was installed during Autumn 2021 and features all the benefits we have come to expect from Hauzer. The capabilities of the system are impressive, being able to deposit an expanded range of decorative PVD coatings including the new range of Barrion™ antibacterial coatings, which adds to the centre’s already wide portfolio of decorative colours.

Chris Constable, Managing Director of Ionbond UK Ltd, commented: “Our investment in this additional large-scale equipment enables Ionbond UK to enhance support to the decorative applications market, which is growing rapidly. It provides new decorative finishes that were previously unavailable. In addition, the new system gives us additional capacity and economy of scale, putting Ionbond at an advantage over our competitors and allowing us to reduce lead times for our customers.”
