Art, technology, and modern alchemy: the secret behind rainbow PVD finish

Rainbow PVD finish is achieved through a skillful mix of raw materials that are vaporized and technical gases using arc and/or sputtering technologies. The raw material consists of so-called cathodes (or targets), which can be made of zirconium, titanium, chromium (not hexavalent!), while process gases such as nitrogen, acetylene, oxygen, argon, and others can be used.
The result is a shifting and iridescent shade, where even with mass production, no two pieces will ever be alike.
