The next generation of finishes
From a technique pioneered for aerospace, Sussex has created LUXPVD®, a contamination-free process that is kind to the environment. Where metal vapour and a vacuum combine to perfectly coat each and every tapware piece, every time, creating beautiful finishes that will stand the test of generations.
Our state of the art Facility
Extraordinary colour designed and manufactured sustainably in Australia
You only have to hold our tapware to feel its exquisite quality and consistent finish, engineered in Australia the right way. From brass to basin, your tapware remains under the watchful eye of local experts. Once installed, its incomparable luxury promises quiet joy, every day.
There may be a hundred shades of black, but only one LUXPVD® Matt Opium Black - the first and truest matt black to be found on tapware made in Australia. All our finishes are just as carefully curated, with flawlessly lustrous colour and unmatched tone.
LUXPVD® tapware is made for real living. It does not tarnish, corrode, or scratch easily, which is why we are proud to offer a 10-year extended warranty. With a finish this resilient, cleaning is fuss-free, allowing your tapware to retain its beauty long into the future.
How does our LUXPVD® process work?
Automated ultrasonic cleaning
During the first stage of our LUXPVD® process, every component transitions through our ultrasonic immersion cleaning tanks. They are a sustainable, automated, contamination-free processing that cleanses the tapware in preparation for its LUXPVD® finish.
Once inside our LUXPVD® machine, a vacuum is formed through which we transfer metal vapour at an atomic level onto our electrically conductive components. Here our team can consistently regulate the material density to ensure accurate colour and perfect tone every single time.
After receiving their unique LUXPVD® coating, the components pass through our meticulous inspection process. Here we check finish consistency, colour accuracy, and material density prior to their assembly and delivery to the customer.
