Insert text here.
  • ​Plating Over Plastic
  • Plating Over Rubber
  • Plating Over Resin
  • Plating Over Wood
Benefits of plating over non-conductive materials:

  • Reduce weight -  Replace a metal component with a lightweight plastic component without losing conductivity.

  • Reduce cost - For example, replace a solid copper block with a copper plated hollow plastic block.

  • Improve appearance - Many coatings are very decorative such as gold, silver and nickel.

  • Increase Durability - Some materials are very reactive and not well suited for certain environments and/or applications. A durable metallic coating often extends the lifetime and improves the performance of the component or assembly.
