surface enhancement performance specialists SINCE 1994

Our Story

Through rigorous research and development, Phygen’s breakthrough technology is redefining the standards for industrial surface enhancement.

From the beginning, Phygen’s goal has been to develop new top-performing coatings for dies, molds, and tooling used in die casting, metal forming, and plastic injection molding. Initially Phygen’s scientists invested six years of research and development activity to perfect new proprietary systems and processes. In 2000, Phygen was awarded a US Patent for a higher-energy plasma acceleration process that is used to apply Phygen’s FortiPhy™ XVD coatings.

Phygen’s patented FortiPhy™ XVD technology is a quantum leap beyond conventional PVD technology, providing a combination of coating properties by creating a dense, non-columnar coating structure having the highest possible adhesion level.

Phygen was founded in 1994 by David C. Bell with the objective of being a technology leader in the industrial surface coatings industry.
