Directly Electroplateable Resins 790218

Recent discoveries have made possible the development of directly electroplateable plastic resins. New additives to electrically conductive carbon-filled plastics overcome previous problems of adhesion and slow electrodeposit coverage times and promote chemical bonding be tween the plastic and electrodeposit. A review of injection molding and electroplating practices for these new materials is presented. It is shown that the chemical bonding mechanism and the elimination of preplating offer economic, fabrication and design advantages compared to conventional methods for plating on plastic.
