Metallisation - principles

The products to be metallised can be made of plastics, glass, ceramics and/or metal. Each metallisation aims at adding value to the respective product by:
  • Improving the reflective characteristics
  • Providing electro-magnetic shielding
  • Achieving decorative surface effects
Metals such as Al, Cu, Au, Ag, NiCr are evaporated under a vacuum. These are deposited on the pre-treated (possibly primed) components made of plastic or other materials as a thin or thick film (EMC). The deposited film is protected through a coating lacquer or a polymer (applied in a vacuum by plasma polymerisation) if necessary..
