Colloidal Palladium Activator for Plating On Plastics

SILKEN CATALYST 501 is a colloidal Palladium/Tin activator used for plating on plastic applications. The product is characterized by an especially fine colloid particle size. It allows a very efficient activation of the plastic surface prior to the electroless plating step to SILKEN METAL 701/709.

Features & Benefits

  • Concentrate contains 4.0 g/L (4000 mg/L) of Palladium metal
  • Enables a very low concentration in the working solution, 30 – 40 ppm.
  • Works well on ABS, PC/ABS blends, Polypropylene, Polyester, Polyamide and many other types of plastic resins
  • Produces a very thin, uniform Palladium-Tin Colloid coating
  • Provides excellent performance and the best economy for most applications thanks to its precise catalyst
  • Offers high solution stability and long life

This process belongs toSILKEN LINE

SILKEN is a process line for the pre-treatment of ABS – PC/ABS and PP-plastic materials for Electroplating.

The SILKEN Line includes products for all process steps from pre-cleaning to etching to Electroless Nickel plating. The SILKEN processes are particularly environmentally friendly.
The pre-treatment with the SILKEN process leads to a very smooth, uniform surface and supports a high degree of brightness of the final finish while providing excellent adhesion of the electroplated deposit.
Due to the reductions in waste water treatment and the reduced aggression on the plating equipment, the SILKEN process provides large economic advantages over conventional plastic pre-treatment processes.
