Metallizing ABS/PC blends




I applied to metallizing ABS/PC blends the same methods to ABS, but I can't obtain any adhesion. Could someone help me?

Plating on ABS/PC is possible but you need a special preconditioner before the chromic etcher. Ask your supplier about it.

We need Nickel chrome plating on ABS/PC injection moulded component. The moulded component is good. But during plating, we notice some black pads and streaks forming. How do we avoid this? Which is the right chemistry for this? What are the basic surface preparations before plating?

Thanks,
