Vacuum Plating & Metallizing

Vacuum Plating & MetallizingAt Spartek, Inc., we have a strong, 50+ year history in the field of vacuum plating and metallization. Over the years we have continually invested in the newest equipment and technologies and refined our processes to produce superior quality finishes. We are a leading authority in the application of tints and colors to vacuum plating, and we have the capacity to handle complex part geometries efficiently and affordably.

Our vacuum plating and metallizing process involves enhancing part appearance, durability, and functionality by evaporating a metal material under vacuum and then condensing it on the component surfaces. We have the ability to apply aluminum, nickel, stainless steel, and brass coatings on non-metal substrates, such as ABS, PET, HDPE, and PP. Our process involves using three separate layers, a base coat, metal evaporated aluminum, and top coat that are decorative and protective. With our state-of-the-art process controls, we produce consistently uniform layers with a high degree of accuracy and repeatability.

Inside our facility, we have six vacuum chambers and five hand spray booths. With our operational flexibility, we can manage small specialty orders as well as mass processing of up to 25 million units. We maintain tight control over quality at all stages of production to ensure consistent results that meet the highest standards of excellence. Our customer service team is knowledgeable, responsive, and committed to providing 100% customer satisfaction.
