Glossary of surface technology

Coating of plastic parts

Low-temperature processes are used for coating plastics. Temperature-sensitive polymers and metals can be provided with protective coatings in plants for coating plastics.

The coating of plastics is possible with a number of processes. In addition to galvanic processes, PVD coating and CVD coating are mainly used, whereby CVD coatings are in principle easier to realise. Since the deposited layers sometimes have layer thicknesses in the µm range and below, the terms thin-film technology, thin-film technology and thin films are also used in analogy to those mentioned above.
