Resumo: A tecnologia dinmica de deposio qumica consiste da simples projeo simultnea e
sequencial atravs de um projetor pneumtico de bico duplo de dois aerossis de base aquosa compostos
de um sal metlico e de um redutor. O lquido misto estende-se sobre a superfcie a metalizar. Para evitar
uma deposio pulverulenta necessrio controlar diversos parmetros, entre os quais a energia
superficial, cintica da reao, relao estequiomtrica entre as espcies eletroativas, espessura da
pelcula lquida mista, a asperso e a microfluidez. A reduo do ction no substrato origina pelculas
metlicas possibilitando NiB, NiP, e outros em espessuras de 0,05 a diversas dezenas de micrometros, e
isto temperatura ambiente. O processo aplicado 1) sobre plsticos. vidro, cermica e outros metais
para fins decorativos, com uma camada metlica entre duas camadas orgnicas, e 2) sobre ABTS, antes
de um espessamento por eletrodeposio.
Abstract: The dynamic chemical plating technology consists of the simple simultaneous and sequential
projection through a Double nuzzle pneumatic gun of two water base aerosols composed of a metallic salt
and reducer. The mixed liquid spreads under the surface of the part to be metalized. To avoid as powdery
deposition, it is necessary to control several parameters of which surface energy, reactional kinetic, the
stoichiometry ratio between electro active species, thickness of the mixed liquid film, the spraying and the
micro fluidic Those conditions together, the reduction reaction of the cation by the reducer oxidation
begins on the surface substrate and archives metallic films (Ag, Cu, Co), of allow NiB, NiP, NiBP,
thick from 0.05 to several ten of microns and this, at room temperature. In this oral presentation, we
present two applications. Firstly, the decorative coating on plastics, glass, ceramic or other substrates.
Cosmetic, perfume, bottles, automotive, domotic, jewellery are concerned by JetMetal process. A thin
metallic film is deposited between two organic coats: a base coat and a top coat. Flexibility and new
effects are possible with this new metallization: shading of, partial decoration, transparent effect, coloured
metallization. The main advantage is to offer an in line technology in substitution to vacuum
metallization process, with high capacity and a Cr (VI) free technology. Secondly, the plating on ABS
plastics. It is well known that the classical metallization process is long and hard. One of the challenges
consists of treat the ABS polymers surface, to achieve a strong adhesion of the metallic film with the
substrate and to deposit an electroless primary film. JetMetal process reduces the number of steps and
permit a dynamic metallization for a conductor film before electroplating thickening. This new process is
developed by Jet Metal Technologies company. Several in line spraying units are running in Europe
and other worldwide soon
