WE do plating on ABS parts but we face problem of straight random line on plated jobs. These problem arise when we give Ni strike before cu & if we do direct cu plating after electroless Ni , we don't get the line problem. This line is not visible on moulded parts. Also we use same tank for both Ni strike & semi-bright plating after cu.
