Environmentally Friendly Processes

PVD coating is a relatively new technology in the world of automotive coating, traditionally made for the aeronautics industry, PVD has worked its way into multiple applications.  The previous solution to the coating problem is electroplating, but the associated drawbacks. 

Of all coating processes, Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is the least detrimental to the environment.  It does not create any hazardous waste due to the nature of the process only requiring vacuum and either heat or energized

gas particles.

Traditional metal coating options utilize caustic cleaning chemicals, dyes, and additives during production, all of which have a negative impact on the environment despite any regulations that may be relevant to the process. 

Cross PVD is both compliant with all state and municipality regulations, as well as committed to consciously

improving our waste contributions and disposal.

Advantages of PVD Coating

  • Allows for atomic-level control providing engineering of specific characteristics within the coating

  • PVD Coated wheels are more resistant to scratching than traditionally chromed wheels
