Barrel Gold Plating on ABS


(2000)

Is it possible to gold plate on small parts in ABS in barrels ? Thanks

ABS plastic? Do the parts float in the finishing solution? If so, how about a plating machine that would keep the parts held against the side of a perforated barrel by centrifugal force, for a duty cycle, then stop the barrel, let the parts fall and mix, then spin them up against the sides again and plate some more until the plating thickness is achieved?

See www.finishing.com/equipment for some suppliers who sell plating equipment.
