TECHNOLOGIES & APPLICATIONS
TECHNIQUE OF DEPOSITING HIGH-ADHESIVE PROTECTIVE, CONDUCTING, REFLECTING AND DECORATIVE COATINGS ON LOW-MELTING PLASTICS
Parts of a microwave distance-measuring system made of polyethylene with conductive and antistatic coatings of copper and stainless steel
- Allows depositing high-adhesive coatings of metals and their compounds on the most of polymeric materials (e.g., polyethylene and polypropylene).
- Technique is based on the method of preliminary ion-plasma modification of a substrate surface by means of an ion-plasma source.
- Adhesion coating strength makes up 400 H/cm2 that is only two times lower than the values characteristic of foil-clad fiberglass plastic.
- Copper films deposited on the polymeric substrate allow soldering with solders having the melting temperature lower than the substrate melting temperature.
- Depositing technique is alternate to tradition galvanic approach differing by its ecological purity
- Replacement of profilecomposite metal parts by polymeric ones with coating allows decreasing metal expenditure, cost and weight of the construction
The technique is used
- To deposit conductive coatings on roll polymeric materials, fabrication of flexible conductors and circuit boards
- To deposit decorative coatings on polymeric parts, e.g., accessories, sanitary articles, etc.
- To deposit reflective coatings on light articles
