Multi-Shot Molded Plastics with Selective Plating – component parts are injection molded with plateable and non-plateable plastic resins resulting in a natural masking effect. Functional and/or appearance plating is then applied to the plateable plastics.

Multi-Shot molding can support your product needs and business results by:

  • Reducing the number of parts, fasteners, and labor needed to make a complex assembly
  • Allowing for intricate designs & embedded functional capability
  • Providing an alternative to metal parts
  • Reducing component weight
  • Improving component performance
  • Simplifying design & engineering
