Shield Plating

Shield Plating

Shield plating protects moulded parts from electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI), and prevents electrostatic discharge (ESD). The plating process deposits metals such as copper, nickel, tin, gold or chrome on the surface of the plastic part. Parts can have shield plating applied as shown on this before/after image of a faceplate.

Increasing Longevity of Parts

Plating is also used for resistance to heat, chemicals or vapours that reduce the lifespan of plastic parts.
