The Balls Evolution is a collection characterized by spheres with a hammered and irregular effect that recalls the colors of a precious metal. To achieve this effect, each ball is subjected to a particular galvanic treatment and equipment in compliance with European regulations. All Balls are treated with a special non-toxic colorless treatment to protect them and make them perfect and unaltered over time.
(first treatment) Sputtering or PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) is the last frontier in product colouring. It consists of physical vapour deposition: the material is evaporated from a solid source in the form of atoms or molecules and transported in vapour form through a high vacuum environment to the substrate (metal, ceramic, plastic, glass) to be coloured. This method - called "vacuum metallization" or "vacuum" - allows the deposition on a substrate of a thin film of metal (chrome, brass, copper or other metals) in a vacuum condition. The vacuum allows metal molecules to move from the evaporation source to the surfaces to be coated without encountering the obstruction of air and other gaseous particles. It is a deposition method capable of generating the thinnest and most uniform coating possible, without generating waste of valuable materials.
The process, dry and at low temperature, forms an unbreakable bond between the metal film and the substrate, which are welded together at the molecular level generating an extremely resistant and durable coating. Vacuum Metallization allows to coat any type of material indistinctly from shape, geometry and size, obtaining both technical and decorative objects with a bright, reflective, metallic as well as variously colored appearance. Transparent Painting (second treatment) Finally, the last step is given by the transparent protective coating, which allows to fix the blackening and to make the article even more shiny and brilliant. Ballsmania products are strictly MADE IN ITALY made in compliance with Italian and European standards, with extreme attention to the materials used and the environment.
