Automotive

With more than 90 million vehicles produced in 2014, the automotive market is the biggest user of surface treatments.

Because of environmental rules which become increasingly harsh, automotive manufacturers are looking to replace existing metallization technologies by green technologies without losing quality of the surface treatments and increasing their costs.

While existing technologies seem to have reached their limits, Jet Metal process proves to be an efficient, green and cost effective alternative.

 

 

Materials

Because of the metallization techniques that were used until then, the automotive market cannot metallize many substrates other than ABS/PC or ABS which can be electroplated. Jet Metal’s metallization process provides Design, Marketing, Engineering, Purchasing… departments with the opportunity to use more materials as ever before like PP, Epoxy, PS, PA, PEEK, ABS and standard PC
