Plastics and Plating on Plastics [1944]

This republished 1944 AES convention paper presents an historic perspective of the early days of plastics in surface finishing - using them and plating on them, in the waning years of World War II.  The discussion reviews the uses of plastics in plating equipment and processing at that time, as well as the coating of the plastics themselves, with accompanying application photos.  You will note that today’s conventional plating-on-plastics processes lay far in the future.  Surprisingly, CVD processes are discussed.
