Regarding to the popular Champagne Gold color (e.g.Iphone cases, smart wearable IT products, cars etc.)We successfully create Champagne Gold coating. It' s composed by gold layer and titanium nitride layer.
IP Imitative Gold literally refers to the color similar with the real gold color while there is no real gold composition in the layer. The color of IP Imitative Gold can be measured by the B value ranging from 20 to 50.
IPG Is short for Ion Plating Gold and it is well known as "fumace-produced gold"(in contrast to galvanic plating). The color of IPG varies and the variations are named as 0.5N, 1 N. 2N and 3N.
IPG coating consists of gold layer and titanium nitride layer. The gold layer on surface is used for decorative purpose while the titanium nitride layer beneath provides high resistance to abrasion and corrosion effect. The thickness of titanium nitride layer ranges from 0.4pm to 1.2pm while the thickness of gold layer ranges from 0.05pm-0.2pm.
The technique to manufacture the IPG coating evolves from the traditional ion plating to the sputtering plating.
IPRG is short for Ion-plating Rose Gold. It is composed by rose gold layer on surface and titanium carbonibide or titanium carbonitride alloy layer underneath. The rose gold layer has several variations depending on the proportions of gold composed. Common variations includes 75%, 85%, 90% and 95% which implies that there Is 75% gold, 85% gold, 90% gold and 95% gold respectively In the rose gold layer. The proportion of gold could be adjusted on the request of customer demand. IPRG Is widely used in middle and high-end watches, jewelries and other metal products.
IP Coffee coating refers to those coatings whose colors are similar with coffee beans. The color of IP Coffee varies in the market and the prevailing one is light coffee color. IP Coffee coating is widely used in middle and high-end watches, jewelries and other metal products. The color can be adjusted flerabty on request of customer demand.
IPB is short for Ion Plating Black coating. It is a kind of coating used in watches, jewelry, hardware etc.
The appearance of IPB could be slightly different depending on the target materials used. The color of IPB could be measured by Lab value: "L" value ranges from 30 to 35; "a" and "b' value equal to or less than 1 while the best value is 0.
Ion Plating Grey coating looks like sliver grey. The color of IP Grey could be measured by Lab value: 'L" value is around 70; 'a" and 'b" value determines the final appearance of coating which could be adjusted on request of customer demand.
Ion Plating Gun coating looks like grey color. The color of IP Gun could be measured by Lab value: "L" value is around 50; if "1" value is less than or equal to 45, it is called dark gun color whereas it is called light gun color when the "L" value is above or equal to 55. The color could be adjusted flexibly on request of customer demand.
DLC is short for 'Diamond Like Carbon'. DLC coating is composed by carbon element. Its physical nature Is similar with natural diamond. It's also composed by black stone atom. Diamond like carbon coating is an amorphous coating. Because of its high hardness, high elastic modulus and low friction coefficient, it is an ideal coating for substrates which need high wear-resistance effect.
Originally coatings whose Vickers Hardness is above 1000HV often refer to as Hard Coating. Some Other hardness degrees available in the market such as 600HV and 800HV. The advantage of Hard Coating Is that It dramatically Improves scratch resistance of substrates.
Ion plated stainless steel is called IPS for short, with the color of stainless steel. It was applied to copper and alloy materials of watches and IPS for electroplated coating including PNP at the earliest. Meanwhile, it can promote wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
The color of IP Blue has two major variations: dark blue and sky blue. IP Blue can be adjusted according to the market demand in the standard range. IP Blue coating is composed by titanium dioxide or titanium dioxide alloy.
