What is ion plating?
Also known as IP Plating, this is one of the newest surface coating procedures and also the most advanced till date. It involves adding a titanium nitride layer to the base metal, in a vapour form. The end result is a harder and more durable surface which offers greater brightness and sheen than the traditional methods of plating.
