IVD Vacuum Vessel

The Ivadizer® is an Ion Vapor Deposition (IVD) vacuum vessel. This physical vapor deposition process is used to apply pure aluminum coatings to various substrates, mainly for corrosion protection. The Ivadizer is a better, greener way to prevent corrosion than the old cadmium processes. Unlike cadmium, aluminum is environmentally clean, nontoxic and safe for operating personnel to handle and use. The Ivadizer provides a safe process with all the benefits of the old cadmium process – superior corrosion resistance, excellent coating protection without loss of strength and flexible load configurations. The base material is not affected by this pollution-free process.
