Aerospace Grade PVD Coating

The Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) process is used by Bailey of Sheffield for the coloured CABLE stainless steel bracelets and beads.

The colours we use are normally hidden inside high performance engines such as F1 and aeroplanes. Each colour also has an engineering application, with for example the Gold and Anthracite colours used on drill bits and tooling to harden the material.

Although it is technically a coating the PVD process actually interrupts the surface and adds between 2 and 4 microns of colouring, making the coating part of the steel itself.

Our Petrol colour is totally unique to every single component we manufacture. It can range from Green, to Blue, Purple and even tones of Gold. Due to the nature of the PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) process for this colour we are proud to confirm that no two components will ever look the same. 

Another unique characteristic of the Petrol PVD is that over the course of time the colour will slowly change from blues/greens and purples through to lighter tones finishing at a gold colour.
