More flexibility for decorative coatings

The new machines at Ionbond Greensboro not just increased the plant’s total coating capacity, but also its coating portfolio, including the color selection of decorative coatings. Ghulam: “We carry the full Tribobond™ DLC portfolio, consisting of Tribobond™ 40, 41 and 42. We also offer most of the Ionbond Decosport coatings, now with a wider color range. For instance, we’ve just qualified a dark black coating on the new machine. In addition, we have gold and yellow colors, plus black chromium-based coatings.” Ionbond is also in the process of developing three additional colors: brown, blue and green.

Soon, they are also starting improvements to the general building infrastructure, to come to a leaner manufacturing process.

Ghulam: “With these improvements, our goal is a further boost to our first-time-yield and a faster turnaround time for our customers. We are already accepting more high-volume orders, and once all the new machinery is online, we will have capacity to do even more. The new technology also allows us to accommodate new applications, and we’re looking forward to working with our customers and our engineering team to come up with the best PVD and DLC coating solution.”
