  • Eliminate expensive and time consuming steps associated with plating metals
  • Produce large quantities at a lower cost than metal
  • Extending product life and aesthetics

Platable thermoplastic compounds allow parts with complicated geometry to be produced cost effectively at high volumes. RTP Company offers platable compounds that promote adhesion between the plastic substrate and the metal plating.

By elevating the specific gravity of the compound with heavy additives while still maintaining platability, the molded part achieves the weight and feel of metal while retaining the design freedom of plastics. In addition, platable compounds can be precolored to match the finish, hiding scratches and marring.
