METHOD OF APPLYING AN ELECTROPLATED LAYER TO A POLYMERIC COMPOSITE MATERIAL

A method of applying an electroplated layer to a surface of a polymeric composite material, the method includes the steps of: providing an uncured polymeric composite substrate; positioning a veil layer over a surface of the uncured polymeric composite substrate, the veil layer providing a conductive surface on the uncured polymeric composite substrate, the veil layer having a mat of metal coated fibres consolidated by an organic binder material; subjecting the uncured polymeric composite substrate to a curing cycle to form a cured polymeric composite material in which the veil layer is partially exposed; and applying an electroplated layer to the conductive surface of the cured polymeric composite material.
