Plating on plastics (POP) refers to the method of electroplating a plastic surface with different metals, such as nickel, chrome, copper, gold, and silver. It comprises etching, conditioning, pre-dipping, cleaning, neutralizing, preactivating, activating, accelerating, and bath immersion. It involves various materials, such as acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), polyether ether ketone (PEEK), propylene (PP), and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). It provides corrosion and chemical resistance and wear protection and increased durability. It offers an excellent finish on a surface and enhanced protection against abrasion as compared to electroless plating. It assists in increasing surface hardness, promoting electrical conductivity, and enhancing the appearance or brightness of a part or component. Besides this, it aids in increasing plastic adhesive properties and strength of a product while acting as a defensive barrier against detrimental gases. As a result, POP is widely employed in the automotive, building and construction, utility, and electronics industries around the world.
