What is Ion Plating?
Ion Plating is also known as IP plating (which would make it Ion Plating Plating!) It is a Physical Vapour Deposition process or PVD.
Ion Plating is a process where the surface required to be plated is bombarded by atomic sized energetic particles.
As well as Jewellery and Watches, Ion Plating is used to deposit hard coatings onto tool blades and the like.
A common one you may have seen is the Black Coating on some Seiko Watches.
Experiments show IP to be 5 to 8 times more durable than conventional techniques.
In the Jewellery Industry IP is usually applied to Stainless Steel commonly in black, brown, rose gold and yellow gold colourings.
As the precious metals become more expensive, we will see more of this durable Jewellery alternative.
