Selective Metal Plating on Plastic

SAT Plating has expanded the range of plateable polymers to include highly difficult-to-plate plastics such as ASA, TPO, Nylon, PPS, PEEK and PEI (Ultem™) materials, just to name a few.

Our proprietary Surface Activation® process allows us to improve the atomic structure of the polymer surface while using no abrasive blasting or hazardous chemical etching of the substrate.

Surface Activation®, along with our collection of other Adaptive Plating Technologies™, can be selectively applied to films, membranes, tubes, fibers, fabric and rapid prototype configurations. Our Adaptive Plating Technologies™ ensure:

  • High-definition – selective plating of conductive surfaces, antennas, functional and appearance coatings
  • Repeatability – high-quality and scale of production volumes
  • Cost Savings – expanded range of material choices and elimination of production steps
