Vibrant® PVD Finishes are produced using state- of-the-art Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) technology to achieve these elegant finishes. Fundamentally PVD is a vaporizing coating technique involving the transfer of material at an atomic level.
During this process, vaporized chemicals condense on the substrate forming a thin film resulting in a color finish.
Every one of our finishes exceeds the industry durability standards two times over. Adding a nickel undercoating enhances the strength and color integrity and gives KOHLER faucets a rich lustre that resists scratching, tarnishing and corrosion.
