Typical thicknesses range from a couple of nanometers to 6μm. The possibilities for applying coatings are endless and depend on the properties you want to add to the base material. Metallic coatings can be applied that can, for example, increase the electrical conductivity, improve the corrosion properties or be used for (optical) reflection. Ceramic coatings can improve wear resistance or add optical properties to materials. Furthermore, these layers are perfectly combinable with galvanic bases originating combinations that excel in wear resistance combined with corrosion properties.
