Vacuum metallization is popular technology to produce metal like products while the raw material is plastic. You will need vacuum coating machine and painting line system to produce high quality products. It’s widely used in plastic industry such as perfume caps, phone covers, car parts and lots of decoration products.
Vacuum Coater – the core part of plastic metallization system. It’s technically known as vacuum evaporation, pvd coating or vacuum plating, it’s revolutional machine comparing traditional water plating equipments. Zero environment pollution but same quality of water plating, vacuum machine is standard choice of plastic metallization in mordern world.

Vacuum coating line
The most important part to give products shinning and long life cycle with high quality physical properties such as anti scratch and environment change etc. high quality painting treatment decides the final product quality.
There will be different choice for coating line configuration depends the paint selection. You must choose the suitable base coat and top coat. In case you selected the incorrect paint, contacts between coating layer and plastic surface will not be stable.
The popular choice is UV painting line for high quality painting together with vacuum metallization. Either the uv base coat or top coat will be very sticky. The most important part is the speed can be very fast for mass production purpose. Instead of long time heating in oven for pu or other coatings, UV coating can be flashable curing by uv light.
Because of this, automatic uv coating line installation size will be pretty small comparing to heat based coating line. UV coating line main parameters overview
