A. Yes it is; it's just a little less expensive than plating Chrome on ABS plastics; but the question puzzling me is why and for what?
There is no commercially viable application for this to the best of my knowledge.

Hi KC,

The most common way to make plastic conductive is to do plating on plastic (POP) by roughening plastic surface (sweller then etching then neutralizing) follow by catalyst seeding (e.g., Pd) on plastic surface followed by electroless plating (e.g. Cu, Ni) followed by electrolytic plating (e.g. Cu, Ni, Cr).

Regards,
David

A. Getting the paint on the plastic surface is just one half of the solution. Please remember that the Ecoat film will have to be cured at 165 ° C (minimum) for 15 minutes.
