New possibilities in polyamide electroplating

  • Chrome surfaces with high strength
  • Reinforced polyamide 6 grades for electroplating
  • Good surface quality at high strength

Galvanized molded parts are used in various applications including automotive trims, handles, letterings in the automotive, furniture, sanitary and household industries. The plastic used stands for the later properties of the components. A good adhesion of the metallized surface is the basic precondition for suitability in the subsequent application. As a rule, there are very high demands on the appearance of parts. Also haptics are crucial. Unlike the procedure of vacuum evaporation, electroplated plastics are characterized by a “Cool-Touch” effect.

Reinforced polyamide 6 grades for electroplating

In order to meet the requirements of the electroplating process, the company TER Plastics Polymer Group has introduced TEREZ Galvano PA, a range ot reinforced polyamide 6 grades. Compared to conventional products, the TEREZ Galvano line is characterized by improved flow property, high mechanical strength and good surface quality. The products provide the basis for very good adhesion to a metallized layer. The product line is suitable for high-gloss, as well matt chromed surfaces.
