This finish is achieved by PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) technology. It is a non-galvanic, non-polluting process, widely used in the watchmaking industry.
SPECIAL FINISHES OF TITANIUM-COATED STAINLESS STEEL
The steel is polished or stained, obtaining parts in shiny or satin titanium. It is a finish of exceptional quality, giving the final product an additional hardness and a very high corrosion resistance.
Although much more resistant to corrosion than stainless steel without PVD, there are agents responsible for the appearance of discoloration:
- No maintenance
- Cleaning with inappropriate chemical agents, such as strong acids or bases
- Installation in coastal areas of high salinity outside, or in areas with a high concentration of chlorine, such as swimming pools
- Installation in heavily polluted areas, such as industrial areas
