Hydrogen Fuel Cell PVD Coating In Rhode Island

Aalberts surface technologies offers PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating for the automotive hydrogen fuel cell generation industry.

The surface coating solution is available at the company’s Woonsocket, Rhode Island location.

With decades of combined experience in surface technologies serving clients throughout the world, Aalberts develops effective PVD solutions to help hydrogen companies improve surface properties.

The company’s PVD coatings involve the application of a seed layer followed by platinum coating.

The coating can be applied to a wide range of substrates, including stainless steel, high-carbon steel, glass, chrome, select plastics, and others. Aalberts works closely with each client to create custom solutions best suited for their particular applications.

Using batch-type coaters, Aalberts reduces cost-per-piece by ensuring that multiple parts can be coated using the same process time as that required by a single part.
