Incertec Introduces Surface Activation® Instead of Chromic/Sulfuric Etching for Plating Plastics

SpecialChem - Jun 6, 2011

Incertec now offers Surface Activation®, a proprietary process for plating plastics which offers numerous improvements over conventional methods. The Surface Activation® process allows a mixture of reactive gases to activate all surfaces of the plastic, even intricate shapes and blind holes. The gases cause the atomic structure of the polymer to change to a depth of 25 microns, creating a polar and hydrophilic surface. The plastic then becomes plateable without chromic/sulfuric etching; allowing for a permanent and stable treatment to a wider variety of polymers than ever before. The process is precise and repeatable, offering consistent and predictable results piece after piece. Surface Activation® is...
