Questions regarding business dealings
Q1. Can I ask for samples?
If you send us a sample item for coating, we will make a prototype in the color you want. There is a basic sample processing fee, however "Pre-ordering samples" etc., will be provided free of charge. Please feel free to inquire.
Q2. How long before I receive the sample?
Depending on the color, shape, quantity, etc., you will receive your sample about 1 ~ 2 weeks after we receive your item.
Q3. How can I request an estimate?
Q4. How are prices calculated?
As we have a batch production system for equipment, the quantity we can coat at one time (one batch) is fixed. Essentially, the calculation is: the cost of processing one batch / divided by the quantity = unit price. If you would like a detailed estimate, please feel free to contact us.
Q5. What kind of payment (transaction) methods can I use?
Question about Ion Plating
Q6. What size of products can be ion plated?
Although it may depend on the shape, material, weight, color, etc. of the item, as long as it can be held by a jig in the ion plating equipment, it should be acceptable within the above criteria (up to 1700 mm in the case of gold or brown.) Please contact us even regarding items that are difficult to hold, as we have extensive experience in jig production.
Q7. What kind of material can be ion plated?
As a pioneer in the field of low temperature Ion Plating, we have a wealth of experience in coating plastics etc. In comparison to wet plating, a feature of the low temperature process is high resistance to scratches and abrasions.
Q8. Ion Plating can be done in what colors?
We can also do "Blue" which has a wide color zone among oxide films, and "Rainbow" etc. making use of gradation. Also, the body films for gold, brown, silver, gray, black can be adjusted for density.
Q9. What materials can be used as a target (plate-shaped metal for film deposition)?
Basically, any conductive solid can be used as a target. However, because of the high temperatures used during coating, materials with a low melting point cannot be used.
