The decorative colored coating is a metallic film produced in a vacuum using a physical vapor deposition process. The coatings are very hard and may contain alloys of Titanium, Zirconium, Chromium or Titanium-Aluminum in the form of TiN, TiCN, CrN, ZrCN, TiAlN .....etc. depending on the color. The color is determined by carefully controlling the mixture of gasses, vacuum level, temperature, metal alloys and other factors.
