  • Patent number: 10077503
    Abstract: A plated resin product includes a resin base including main plated portions and an auxiliary plated portion and metal films respectively arranged on the main plated portions and the auxiliary plated portion. The main plated portions are arranged next to one another. One of the two main plated portions located at two ends in a direction in which the main plated portions are arranged includes an edge at a portion located at a side of the main plated portion that is far from an adjacent one of the main plated portions. The auxiliary plated portion is located farther from the adjacent main plated portion than the main plated portion including the edge and spaced apart from that main plated portion. The metal film on the auxiliary plated portion is located at a section of the auxiliary plated portion that is non-visible when the product is viewed from the front.

  • Patent number: 8846194
    Abstract: The present invention provides an electromagnetic wave-permeable brilliant coated resin product which has a brilliant coating film formed by applying a coating composition that includes a planar brightening material formed from aluminum, on a resin substrate. Within the brilliant coating film, the brightening material is oriented in a state such that a plane thereof is biased toward a direction that follows a surface of the brilliant coating film, and an average overlapping quantity (y), which is an average of a quantity of brightening material that crosses one orthogonal line that is orthogonal to the surface of the brilliant coating film, and an average inter-brightening material distance (x), which is an average of distances on the orthogonal line between adjacent brightening materials that cross said orthogonal line, satisfy the following two formulae: y?0.5 ??(formula 1), and y?0.3969x+0.594 ??(formula 2), where, the unit for x is ?m.

  • Patent number: 8333457
    Abstract: The present invention is used for a printing target having a non-flat surface portion in at least a portion of a printing surface. To form a decorative printing film on the printing surface of a base material, ink droplets of the same color as the color of the printing film are ejected from nozzles of an inkjet printer onto the printing surface. The distance from the nozzles to the printing surface is represented by X (mm). The droplet amount of the ink is represented by Y (pl). When the maximum value of the distance X is greater than 5 mm, the droplets are ejected from the nozzles each by an amount greater than the droplet amount Y represented by the equation: Y=0.9X1.5.

  • Publication number: 20090297880
    Abstract: The electromagnetically transparent bright resin product includes a resin base 11 made of a polycarbonate (PC), an aluminum (Al) film 13 deposited on the resin base 11 by sputtering, and a chromium film 12 deposited on the aluminum film 13 by sputtering. After the deposition, the films 13 and 12 were heated at 120° C. for 2 hours together with the resin base 11. The aluminum film 13 and the chromium film 12 are hence present as a film of a discontinuous structure.

  • Publication number: 20060159948
    Abstract: After a silicatizing flame, a titanium oxidizing flame, or an aluminum oxidizing flame is blown together with an oxidizing flame onto the surface of a resin base material to perform surface modification treatment, dry plating or wet plating is performed on the surface of the resin base material to thereby form a plating film. In the surface modification, in the case of the silicatizing flame, for example, silanol groups are imparted to the surface of the resin base material as polar groups necessary for obtaining adhesion to the plating film.

  • Publication number: 20040086728
    Abstract: A plated product has a base layer, a silver plating layer, and a top coat layer. The top coat layer is consisted of an acrylic silicone coating that includes a primary agent and a curing agent. A coating film is formed by causing the primary agent and the curing agent to react while the acrylic silicone coating is applied to the metal plating layer. When the coating film is aged by allowing to stand for 240 hours at a normal temperature and a humidity range of 20% to 70%, the range of the glass transition temperature of the coating film is between 70° C. and 120° C. inclusive. The plated product has superior weather resistance.

  • Publication number: 20030108751
    Abstract: In the silver mirror pre-treating step, a tin[II] chloride solution with tin[II] actually serving as a co-catalyst is used for supporting tin[II] on the surface of the basecoat layer in the co-catalyst-supporting step. In the next washing step, the surface of the basecoat layer is washed with water. In the still next catalyst-supporting step, a palladium chloride solution with palladium[II] actually serving as a catalyst is used for supporting palladium[II] on the surface of the basecoat layer. After that, the resulting laminate is washed in the next washing step and then plated through silver mirror reaction in the still next plate layer-forming step.
