Dark Black, Purple, and Rainbow PVD Coatings

Popular colors (including rainbow PVD coating) 

The continuing evolution of PVD coating colors helps you make your products stand out in the market. These coatings look great, and because they are PVD coatings, you also get improved durability and hardness. PVD coating colors range from traditional dark black, grays, and bronzes to vivid colors, including blue, violet, and gold.  All these colors improve both the appearance of parts and their durability. 

As we usher in 2024, VaporTech® now offers an expanded color palette to meet your changing needs. Manufacturers and consumers want new options for:

  • Consumer applications like automotive trim, architectural hardware, and sporting goods in colors consumers love.
  • For manufacturers using PVD coatings for their functional performance, color-coating your industrial products differentiates them from your competition and strengthens your brand.


When you work with Vapor Technologies (VaporTech®), our team takes the parameters you need for your application. It provides the coatings and equipment to bring this capability in-house for a surprisingly low cost per part.
