Products Cellular phone housing
This housing for cellular phones is made of plastics. Through chemical metallisation, the part is coated with a layer of copper, which allows for electromagnetic shielding, and nickel, which supplies corrosion and wear resistance.

Chemical metallisation enables selective-coating of the part, as in the case shown, where only the inner surface is coated.
