Rapid Cycle Metalizing
VTI vacuum metalizing services are based on our pioneering legacy of innovation in the field of Rapid Cycle Metalizing systems. VTI invented the processes and equipment which are now the industry standard for automotive lighting products. As a leader in vacuum metalizing technology, VTI employs multiple PVD coating techniques (sputtering, cathodic arc, and thermal evaporation) in order to provide coatings tailored to your specifications for thickness, complexity, and reflectivity.
Metalizing can be functionally divided into three groups based on application:
- Reflective coatings for commercial, industrial, solar, and automotive lighting
- Decorative coatings for displays, hardware, home appliances, automotive trim, and related applications
- Shielding coatings for electronic isolation (EMI/RFI/ESD)
Highly reflective coatings are typically produced by sputtering aluminum followed by a protective topcoat. Our decorative coatings range from bright chrome to copper and brass. EMI/RFI shielding is accomplished by depositing a highly conductive metallic layer, such as aluminum or copper, to the component.
