Process for ABS or other polymers

Etching


The goal is to create a rough surface to allow the subsequent deposit of metal.



Neutralisation


The goal is to perfectly clean the parts.



Catalyse


Deposit of a stable colloïdal palladium, which after activation will catalyse the reduction of electroless nickel.



Electroless Nickel


The parts are now conductive for the electrolytical process.



Pre-copper


This coat is to strengthen the conductivity.



Acid-copper


First electrolytical step, high gloss coat, basis of the plating.



Nickel


Protect the copper layer; this layer can be brilliant or velvet.



Finish


It is the final coat to protect the nickel and obtain the final finish of the part: chrome, white bronze, gold, gun metal.





Process on metal parts

Cleaning


The goal is to clean the part.



Alcalin-copper


Very important layer for the Zinc-Alloy parts, to protect them.




The following steps are the same as the P.O.P process.






After plating, all the products are 100% inspected according to the quality limits established by the customer.
