Vacuum evaporation can be used to give surfaces of plastic parts a metallic appearance. At 1zu1, this is mainly used for prototype parts produced in stereolithography and vacuum casting processes. However, the process is just as suitable for creating metallic coatings on series plastic parts produced by injection molding, for example.
Chrome-like results are achieved at 1zu1 with aluminum vapor deposition and subsequent protective coating with clear lacquer.
Likewise, EMC shielding coatings can be applied in varying thicknesses (2.5 µm, 5 µm, 10 µm). These layers provide effective protection against electromagnetic interference and electrostatic charging of plastic parts.
