METAL COATED plastics are covered with a defined layer of a special copper and nickel mixture and have modified, especially desired characteristics. It is an expensive method which is not suitable for series production.
Scope for metal coating
sample, functional and design parts made with laser sintering from polyamide
SLA parts made from varying plastics
for very high standards regarding strength and stiffness
for the significant increase of the temperature resistance
for the improvement of electrical conductivity
for the improvement of thermal conductivity
for the prevention of plastic deformation under load
for the shielding against electromagnetic fields
for the resistance against aggressive and corrosive influences
as replacement for pressure die-casting parts
for a metallic appearance
for especially demanding design objects.
Attention – especially well-suited for single pieces.
Metallization is achieved by copper and nickel in variable volume proportions.
The properties of the composite components result directly from the ratio of the three components they contain.
