What is PVD Vacuum metalizing?
Basically it is one form of Physical vapor deposition.
PVD uses cathodic arc deposition and a sputtering process to produce high-grade coatings. The results are finishes that are resistant to chemicals, are easy to maintain, can protect against corrosion, and dramatically increase tool life.
In a process known as physical vapor deposition (PVD), a layer of metallic film is applied to a substrate in a vacuum chamber at a low temperature. PVD is a preferred technology because it doesn't require a conductive substrate - the metal film can be applied to plastic, mcetal, or glass.
How PVD Vacuum metalizing is done?
• Parts are sprayed with a basecoat (becoming obsolete in new technology with highly polished molds using amorphous materials).
• Parts are racked, racks put into the chamber, the chamber is then sealed.
• Argon gas( or other gas) is introduced into the chamber in a continuously flowing manner.
• Electricity creates an active Argon plasma field in front of the cathode. (The cathode is an assembly which contains magnets and provides a mounting for the target - a plate of the material which will be deposited. The magnets are located behind the target.)
• The positively charged (ionized) Argon atoms are accelerated by passing through a magnetic field (created by magnets inside the cathode).
• The positive atoms are attracted to the negative charged cathode which contains the target.
• The target is bombarded with each ion particle, they individually break off ("chip") an atom of the target material with each collision (target hit continuously).
• Continuous (and directed) sputteing of tghe release target atoms are "shot" onto the surface of the part (direction is assisted by the magnetic field - perpendicular to the target.
• The basecoat material/paint (or high gloss amorphous part) provides a smooth surface for the atoms to be deposited together and build up on the part.
• The part is top coated with HMDSO (in monomer form, polymerized by passing through a plasma created by high voltage rods - the polymer condensates onto the coating surface).
• The chamber is vented and parts removed/reloaded.
