VTI’s NexSteel™ Decorative Coating combines the look and feel of brushed stainless steel by applying a thin film layer of stainless steel to textured plastic parts through a process known as physical vapor deposition.  NexSteel™ is often preferred over solid stainless steel because it is less costly, is easier to clean, offers design flexibility and is lighter in weight.  Contact us today to learn more about our metallizing services and PVD coatings.
