Plating on plastics (POP) refers to the process of electroplating a plastic surface with different metals, such as chrome, nickel, electroless nickel, cobalt phosphorus, copper, gold, and silver. It involves cleaning, pre-dipping, etching, conditioning, neutralizing, activating, accelerating, and bath immersion. It is primarily utilized for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of products, promoting electrical conductivity, increasing surface hardness, improving corrosion and wear resistance, and providing a base coating. At present, it finds a wide range of applications in the automotive, electronics, and plumbing industries across the globe.
POP is employed in the automotive sector worldwide for manufacturing window trims, interior trims, auxiliary lamps, mirror housings, radiator grills, name badges, and front and rear lamps. This can be accredited to its advantageous properties, such as lowering costs and offering weight reduction. Apart from this, POP is used to improve the aesthetic appearance of plastic trims on computers, knobs, mobile phones, buttons, and switches. Furthermore, the key players are focusing on producing eco-friendly product variants by eliminating the utilization of fluorinated surfactants, phosphates, formaldehyde, and boric acid. These players are also increasing the adoption of multi-molded and two-shot parts processes for reducing costs and improving the existing product quality. The market is also driven by technological advancements in electroplating technology. For instance, the utilization of double-layer nickel systems that comprise a semi-bright underneath layer with a bright nickel topcoat is assisting in improving the corrosion resistance capability of POP. This, along with the development of a micro discontinuous chromium system for enhancing the resistance of nickel and chromium deposits during the metallization process, is anticipated to fuel the market growth.
