PVD Chrome Technology
Replaces Traditional Chrome Plating
Just like the paint on the hood of your vehicle, PVD coat has a clear top coat applied, and proper care must be taken during normal cleaning. Just as you would wash a clear-coated vehicle with a constant supply of clean fresh water, PVD Coated wheels must be washed with plenty of fresh, flowing water. Contaminants such as brake dust or dirt may scratch the wheel if they are wiped from the clear-coat without the presence of fresh water. After cleaning, a coat of protective wax that is "Clear Coat Safe" will help to preserve the finish. If minor scratches or swirl marks do occur, they may be removed by using a high quality fine polish, or scratch remover that is "Clear Coat Safe".
NEVER use chrome polish or any aluminum polishes that have abrasives.
NEVER spray cold water on hot or warm wheels; this can result in damaging the appearance permanently.
Use caution around automatic car washes, due to their use of bristle brushes or acidic preparations that are used to remove wheel soils.
Black Diamond Wheel's Black Chrome is a unique look not possible with traditional chrome plating. The BDW Black Chrome PVD process has all the reflective quality of chrome but with less of a “BLING” factor. The color is very consistent but the wheels reflects differently with each different wheel design, plus with PVD you get better coverage than traditional chrome plating.
