Aerospace Grade PVD Coating
The Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process is used by Bailey of Sheffield for the coloured CABLE™ bracelets and beads.
PVD is a complex process, primarily used in aerospace and Formula 1 applications. During the colouring procedure the high purity, solid coating material (metals such as titanium, chromium and aluminium) is deposited by electron beam or magnetron evaporation. This forms a compound with the metal vapour which is deposited on our components as a thin, highly adherent coating. A uniform coating thickness is obtained by rotating the parts at a constant speed about several axes within the PVD chamber.
