Vergason Technology, Inc.
For over three decades, Vergason Technology, Inc. (VTI) has been an industry leader in vacuum coating systems, services and processes. Specializing in Sputtering, Thermal Evaporation and Cathodic Arc (CatArcÂ®) technology, VTI not only designs and builds the equipment, we offer PVD coating services.
Over the years, VTI has developed many innovative coatings including SuperChromeâ„¢ PVD Coating, a safe alternative for traditional chrome plating. With the look and feel of chrome, SuperChromeâ„¢ does not contain the harmful, hexavalent (Cr +6) compounds. In addition, SuperChromeâ„¢ does not require a top coat to interfere with the chrome finish. Not only does it look great, it has passed many of the rigorous automotive tests, including over 133 hours of the grueling Russian Mud test.
NexSteelâ„¢ is a very popular decorative coating utilizing a thin layer of steel over a textured molded part, to resemble brushed stainless steel.
BlackCatâ„¢ Tactical Coating, is a permanently bonded PVD thin film coating designed for applications requiring a tough, non-reflective, durable black coating, offering optimal wear resistance and lubricity.
VTIâ€™s Vacuum Metallizing Equipment incorporates our patented CatArcÂ® cathodic arc and Press-SideÂ® technologies, todayâ€™s industry standard.
Metallizing customers include automotive, lighting, display and EMI/RFI shielding applications. VTI wear coating services are utilized for tool, blade, punch and various tactical items.
At Vergason Technology, Inc., we uphold a high standard. All orders received are carefully inspected, tested at random times during the coating process, and reviewed again prior to shipment to our customers. We want you to be 100 percent satisfied.,/p>
Headquartered in the Finger Lakes Region of New York, we have US sales offices in Michigan, Minnesota, Texas and international partners in Europe, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, China and India.
