An attempt has been made in this work to develop copper coatings with enhanced corrosion and hardness properties on ABS plastics prepared by FDM-RP process. The increase of corrosion resistance of copper 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 copper coatings was found uniform and analyzed using SEM images. © 2014, Sphinx Knowledge House. All rights reserved.
