Corrosion: Fundamentals, Testing, and Protection
CVD and PVD Coatings
Vapor-deposition processes fall into two major categories, namely, physical vapor deposition (PVD) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This article describes major deposition processes such as sputtering, evaporation, ion plating, and CVD. The list of materials that can be vapor deposited is extensive and covers almost any coating requirement. The article provides a table of some corrosion-resistant vapor deposited materials. It concludes with an overview of the applications of CVD and PVD coatings and a discussion on coatings for graphite, the aluminum coating of steel, and alloy coatings for aircraft turbines, marine turbines, and industrial turbines.
