Plating on Plastics

Plating on Plastics

Some of the earliest patents for plating on plastics were owned by Epner Technology. They were for gold plating plastic military buttons and insignia, thus saving millions of pounds of brass desperately needed for World War II shell casings. Today, Epner specializes in plating a variety of dielectric materials including the engineering plastics such as Ultem™, Teflon™, Ryton™ and Torlon™…and of course ABS.
