Starex ABS resin which is provided with excellent processability, impact strength, rigidity, with easy coloration and excellent surface gloss in particular, is widely used in various electrical, electronic and commodity parts for which good appearance is needed.
It is required that three factors of selection of specially manufactured resins, grinding process for mold cavity surface and molding conditions be balanced to yield products with good appearance.
Plating can shield products from electrical waves, and make surface attractive and lightweight. An starex ABS for metal plating should be easily etched and have a good adhesion force for plating to meet productivity requirements. And to accommodate these requirements. starex ABS for metal plating features evenly spread anchor holes and good plating adhesion factors that show little plating deformation. These attributes will increase manufacturing productivity.
While maintaining properties of ABS and, the balance of mechanical properties and processability, starex ABS for metal plating has a good etching property and wide range of plating process conditions. Excellent etching and plating properties can be expected on small products like cosmetic cases and large products like radiators.
1) Excellent Antistatic Effect : Due to a good antistatic property, pollutants,dust and mites should not be found on products.
2) Rapid Antistatic Effect : The antistatic effect begins immediatelyafter molding and is maintained for a long period.
3) Stability of Physical Properties : The uses of all grades are wide and the changes in physical properties are small.
4) Excellent Secondary Processability : The secondary process can be used on both antistatic grades and general ABS grades.
5) Uniform Quality : Qualities such as physical properties and color are controlled by on-line automatic processes. Antistatic
1) Excellent etching conditions
Satisfactory etching properties, the wide range of applicable plating processes, and the evenly spread anchor holes make ABS an excellent choice for plating plastics.
2) Wide range of plating grades
The wide range of plating grades will give customers the choice of suitable materials for both large and thin walled products.
3) Excellent mechanical properties & appearance
Property deterioration does not occur before or after plating and this material has an attractive appearance due to the prevention of pinholes.
4) Good dimensional stability
Excellent dimensional stability is maintained before or after injection or plating, and the properties are not affected by environmental factors.
ABS for metal plating is suitable for application to Knobs, name plates, handle of refrigerator, cosmetic containers, Automobile radiator grill, lamp housing ,other products requiring metal plating.
