New possibilities in polyamid electroplating: The new product range TEREZ Galvano PA extends the scope of higher design freedom and excellent surfaces at high strength.
Galvanized molded parts are used in a variety of forms. Application examples are automotive trims, handles, letterings in the automotive, furniture, sanitary and household industries. The plastic used stands for the later properties of the components.
A good adhesion of the metallized surface is the basic precondition for suitability in the subsequent application. As a rule, there are very high demands on the appearance of parts. But also haptics are crucial. Unlike the procedure of vacuum evaporation, electroplated plastics are characterized by a "Cool-Touch" effect.
Visible parts subjected to bending or tension unreinforced materials quickly reach their limits. The new product line TEREZ Galvano PA represents reinforced polyamide 6 types which have been specifically tailored to the requirements of the electroplating process.
Compared to conventional products, the TEREZ Galvano line is characterized by an improved flow property, high mechanical strength and good surface qualities. The products provide the ideal basis for excellent adhesion to metallized layer. The product line is suitable for high-gloss, as well matt chromed surfaces.
