Types of Plastic That Can Be Plated
To enable plating to adhere onto plastic, you need a special type of plastic. Generally, the type used is electroplating grade Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). If you have plastics that are nylon or contain polycarbonate, please speak to a technical representative from Precision Plating.
Plastic parts generally need to have purpose built racks. This is to ensure they are held in the right place and they don’t warp or bend in the process.
