PVD coating systems for the printing industry

PVD coating know-how for the printing industry

The PVD and PECVD processes are increasingly perceived as an alternative coating technology to the conventional electroplated chromium coating technology. A ban has already been imposed in many countries, forcing manufacturers to rethink their classic way of working.

Unlike electroplating, PVD technology is a dry and environmentally friendly process that does not produce hexavalent chromium (chromium VI).

The special feature of the INORCOAT coating solution for the printing industry is a completely chrome-free technology that solves the chrome VI problem in its entirety, because no chrome VI is produced during the decoating process either.

For you and the printing industry, we have developed relevant process coatings that can be created with INORCOAT’s PVD systems.
