In order to reduce costs, the use of polymer and composite materials has been booming over the last few years in the high-tech industry, especially. However, since those materials do not enjoy the same properties as metals, the need to functionalize surfaces is increasing.
Many business sectors use metallization to give specific technical features to materials.
It should be noted that traditional metallization techniques, namely electroplating and PVD are facing issues of different kinds: economic and environmental issues as well as issues relating to production capacity.
In-line and patented metallization process, the Dynamic Chemical Plating overcomes those limitations and is today considered as an innovative and efficient alternative in the surface treatment industry.
