Nickel chrome plating on plastics


Dear Sir,

We are doing Nickel plating on ABS plastic with Copper undercoat. We are facing two types of problems.

1. Streaks / Waviness after acid copper plating.

2. Blisters in the LCD area after chrome plating.

Can you suggest any reasons for the above defects and how to avoid them.

Mr. Arun: Are you looking for books to buy or are you looking for a consultant to hire?

(Obviously nobody could possibly post a response that would give you details, know-how, and troubleshooting. They would have to spend years on their reply, just as book authors must spend years to write their books on the subject).
