Project oriented on product and process innovation on small metallic accessorizes for fashion industry: development of PVD mass finishing.

Beneficiaries: Protec Surface Technologies S.r.l., Weal S.r.l., Bottonificio B.A.P. S.p.A., Politecnico di Milano

Initiative under “Axis I – Strengthening of Research, Development and Innovation – Objective 1b.1 – Actions 1b.1.2”

Description: The purpose of the project is to apply PVD technology on large quantities of small metallic accessories used in fashion industry, moving forward from what “state of art” is in this moment in equipment field and developing new solutions.

The project aims to provide a eco-friendly solution and to overcome the limits of the currently used galvanic treatments:

  • low uniformity of thickness and color;
  • poor mechanical and chemical-physical resistances;
  • damage of parts to be coated due to rubbing and rolling inside barrels used for galvanic treatment.
