Decorative coatings

Atomic layer deposition has a lot to offer in decorative coatings. Beneq’s expertise with advanced filters and optical coatings can be used for improving aesthetical values of a product, for example by giving plastic the appearance of metal.

Metal-like decorative ALD coatings have many benefits over other coating technologies when applied to small items, such watch parts and fine mechanics. As a coating method for decoration, ALD enables mirror coating of complex 3D objects that are difficult or impossible for other methods.

The color depth and density of ALD-based color coatings is virtually impossible to obtain with absorbing pigments. ALD-based thin film coatings do not require the use of binders and solvents and the adhesion is typically better than other solutions, such as physical vapor deposition (PVD) films.
