Metallisation - requirements

Not all plastic or other materials are suitable for a metallisation process. Materials to be metallised must meet the following requirements:
  • Low out-gassing rate
  • Thermal stability > 60°C
  • Clean surface free of oil/grease and release agents
  • Suitable geometry
  • Good wettability for primer (if necessary)
A glow discharge process which is integrated in the plant is recommended for almost all materials before metallisation so as to enhance adhesion. (also refer to Plasma treatment )
