High-end coatings for interior

The interior of a vehicle plays a crucial role in providing comfort, style and an enjoyable driving experience. Ionbond decorative PVD coatings can enhance the aesthetics and functionality of automotive interiors by offering a range of benefits such as extreme hardness (2-4 times harder than steel), base texture replication and natural metallic colors, and can be applied to most materials used in the automotive interior industry. This makes them an excellent choice for enhancing the automotive interior to embrace the passengers in a luxury good feeling environment.

Exterior coatings

The exterior of a vehicle is not only its first impression, but also its primary defense against road elements (water, stones, sand, salt, etc.). Our PVD coatings can enhance the durability, performance and aesthetics of some specific automotive exterior details due to benefits such as increased hardness, specific metallic appearance and dark black colors. This makes Ionbond’s coatings an excellent choice for enhancing automotive exterior details.

Decorative PVD coating

Decobond™ coatings are used for applications where improved wear resistance and a bespoke and long lasting metallic look is required.  Typical applications are kitchen and bath fittings, sporting goods, door- and boat hardware, interior trim and automotive components. PVD forms conformal coatings which will replicate the texture and structure of the uncoated surface. The coatings can be applied to mirror finishes, brushed or other textures surfaces without the need to re-polish or texturing. PVD is a line of sight process with limited coating capacities for hidden features and deep recesses. Ionbond offers a range of standard colors and has the ability to match colors to designers’ requirements.

Corrosion Resistance and Care

PVD coatings do not enhance corrosion resistance. Corrosion resistance has to be controlled by the substrate (stainless steel, titanium) or the electroplated understructure. Decobond™ 7812 is not resistant to phosphoric acid and or phosphoric acid containing agents. Decobond™ 7812 needs no particular care, however, abrasive substances like sand or abrasive cleaning agents and pads should not be used for cleaning.
