What exactly is PVD?

Fantini only uses the finest finishes in their fixtures, PVD being one of the them. PVD - Physical Vapor Deposition - allows an aesthetic finish, due to the chemical’s hardness, resistance and durability. When compared to other chemical processes, PVD has a reduced environmental impact.


The chemical process was born in the aerospace industry, originally used for metal tools in the 70s. Today, Fantini uses PVD for an enhanced finish across a selection of its faucets and fixtures, giving options including: Matte Gun Metal, Matte British Gold, Matte Copper, and Polished Nickel.


Free of imperfections, Fantini’s matte PVD goes through a tedious process, making for a very high-quality product when done correctly. The finish is hypoallergenic and resistant to corrosion, chemical products, and UV light.


Many of Fantini’s collections are shaped around the Matte PVD finish; by using the best technology and application of the finish, Fantini ensures each and every product is made with care. Fantini strives for the best faucets and fixtures, with finishes that will last.
