DOOR HARDWARE FINISHES

HARD WEARING METALLIC FINISHES

VM – Vacuum Metallisation

SuperInox

With vacuum metalissation or the SuperInox treatment, a polished or satin-finish chrome handle is coated with an ulterior layer of metal (SuperInox finish) under high vacuum. Vacuum metallisation is extremely hard and durable. Nanocomposites of metal determine the specific colour of the surface and protect it from wear, scratches and aggressive substances such as humidity, sweat, salt spray, temperature swings and ultraviolet rays.
