WHY FORTIPHY™ XVD?
because conventional PVD is old technology
The high-failure rate of conventional PVD coatings is expensive. It’s time for a new generation of surface enhancement: Phygen’s FortiPhy™ XVD Nanoperfection Technology is a quantum leap ahead of conventional cathodic arc PVD coatings.
a breakthrough scientific advance
FortiPhy™ XVD (Xcelerated Vapor Deposition) Nanoperfection Technology delivers smaller, more consistent nanoparticles while eliminating 90% of the macroparticle flaws and surface defects common to conventional PVD surface coatings. The nearly defect-free nanocrystalline structure produced by FortiPhy™ XVD Technology is far superior to conventional PVD, delivering levels of performance and endurance never before thought possible.

welcome to true ultra-endurance
No other coating technologies can even come close to the performance characteristics and ultra-endurance provided by Phygen’s FortiPhy™ XVD technology. You have to see it to believe it.
scientifically proven ultra-endurance
lasts 3x to 88X longer than conventional PVD coatings
ultra hard = superior wear resistance
The FortiPhy™ XVD process delivers near-diamond hardness, shielding even the hardest substrate materials. Its higher surface density and tighter nano-crystalline structure delivers the lower surface energy required for higher lubricity, smoother sliding and faster release needed in high-speed applications.
super bond strength = extended longevity
Proven in the lab and in real use application, the FortiPhy™ surface bond strength is stronger than the molecular bond of the substrate material itself, significantly reducing the peeling, cracking and scratching responsible for most coating failures.
ultra thin = dimensional precision
At less than 1/10th the thickness of a human hair (3-6um), FortiPhy™ surface enhancement outperforms and outlasts coatings over 10x thicker. By more precisely conforming to fine surface details, tighter tolerances can be met and intended dimensions of components are preserved.
corrosion protection = consistent results
Industry standards for corrosion resistence (e.g. electroless nickel) are soft and wear away quickly. FortiPhy™ coatings are inert and won’t cause an increased risk of any chemical reactions. Phygen is proud to announce it’s FortiPhy™ technology has been bench-tested by the US Army and designated a leader in corrosion protection for high pressure, highly abrasive environments.
green is good
FortiPhy™ nanoparticle compounds are comprised of a completely inert and safe molecule which is deposited in a chemical-free process inside an enclosed vacuum chamber. Environmental exposure to the toxic chemicals found in the hard-chrome plating process is completely eliminated.
Did you know?
Hard chrome plating is now banned by EU/REACH regulations and is impacting businesses around the world, including those exporting into the European Union. FortiPhy™ technology is fully compliant, making it your ideal alternative to hard chrome plating.
