Selected GageMetal designs are now available with a PVD color finish. PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition is the process of combining metal vapor with gases and applying it to steel using a vacuum chamber. This process creates a micro-thin, transparent, colored film on the stainless steel sheet which increases the durability without adding to the weight of the panel.
PVD coated panels can be formed to a 90º angle without damage to the PVD finish. The image to the right shows an unretouched detail image of GM438 Long Grain Satin in Copper finish formed to a 90º angle with the grain of the metal.
