  • The process chain of INSTANTCHROME®

    1. Injection Moulding
    2. Priming, UV-coating/drying
    3. Chrome plating (PVD-Coating)
    4. Topcoat (decorative protective coating) with solvent based and solvent free coatings, UV coating
    5. Automated packaging of the coated products

  • Advantages of INSTANTCHROME® versus galvanization process

    ● Fully automated process from injection moulding to ready-coated and packaged product
    ● Repeatable due to exactly adjustable parameters for coating and chrome plating
    ● Qualitative advantages due to constant process conditions
    ● Significantly lower scrap rate
    ● Direct part assessment during process
    ● No Hot Touch Effect
    ● Energy conservation
    ● Environmental compatibility (no hazardous waste)
    ● Cost savings

  • Applications of INSTANTCHROME®

    Decorative and functional coatings (matt and shiny)

  • Significant Advantages compared to galvanically chrome-plated parts

    ● Selective coating for fiber optics/reflector
    ● Various coating materials and polymers applicable
    ● Even snap-on hinges, clip closures, film hinges possible
    ● Ultrasonic welding, day & night design lasering feasible
