An attempt has been made in this work to develop nickel chromium coatings with enhanced corrosion and hardness properties on ABS plastics prepared by FDM-RP process. The increase of corrosion resistance of Ni-Cr electrodeposited coatings in sea water medium claimed that these coated plastics can find as substitute for metal parts used in automobile components. Hardness values measured by Vickers hardness tested validated the improved mechanical properties. The presence of micro roughness and improved tensile strength values signify that the coatings have firmly absorbed on ABS plastics. The morphology of Ni-Cr coatings was found uniform and analyzed using SEM images. © 2014 University of Manchester and the authors.
