Decorative Ceramics

Mikio Fukuhara

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter discusses titanium nitrides (TiN) and titanium monoxide (TiO) as decorative ceramics. A physical property of TiN and TiO is given. Golden decoration ceramics is classified into two categories: sintered bodies and coated ceramic. TIN-coated decorative ceramics are used on wristwatches because they are scratchproof, light, corrosion resistant, and golden in color. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD) methods are used. The former provides high adhesion strength and mass production for complicated goods, whereas the latter is suitable for middle-scale production of simple form goods with adhesion strength less than the former. The products by the former method are somewhat reddish golden in tone, while the latter one's is light golden color.
