Metalplus coating

Author: SCP Rapid Prototyping
Published On: 9 July 2024

SCP Rapid Prototyping, an additive manufacturing company,  has introduced in its plant the innovative Metal Plus metal coating system, which allows the coating of a polymer component produced in rapid prototyping with a layer of structural copper/nickel.

This process considerably improves the mechanical and aesthetic properties of the component.

  • The thickness of the coating can reach up to 0.5 mm and can vary on request.
  • This process also allows the metal coating of components with complex shapes (regardless of the process of production) and it guarantees a considerable improvement of the mechanical and aesthetic properties of the component.
  • Metal Plus also provides shielding and conductivity to the polymer component as it behaves like a metal as a result of the process.
  • Metal Plus allows to replace finishes such as chrome using the inherent aesthetical properties of the coating.
  • Metal Plus is available in SLA and SLS technology.

Please visit the datasheet documents to analyze the mechanical properties
