  • Mr Peter Franks - Managing Director


Dual Metallising Ltd was set up in 1982 as a vacuum metallising and spray painting company offering various professional finishing services. Within six years we had expanded our operations to include plastic injection moulding. Today we are specialists in all three areas, allowing us to provide a comprehensive manufacturing and finishing service for clients across all industry sectors. 

Dual Metallising maintains the very highest quality standards and has a track record of delivering a fast, efficient and reliable service on volumes large and small. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible service for our customers, offering highly competitive rates and ensuring a rapid turnaround on orders. 

Our manufacturing/finishing services are offered to all industries, but one of the areas where we have particular expertise is the production of vacuum formings and injection mouldings for the point of sale industry. We have developed promotional products for many of the UK’s leading commercial organisations. 

You can find out more about our vacuum metallising, paint spraying and injection moulding services in the sections below and on our website. If you have any questions or would like to discuss your requirements with a member of the Dual Metallising team, just give us a call or send your enquiry via email. 

Spray Painting on Plastic Parts

Paint spraying is one of the best ways of enhancing the appearance of a substrate. It both fast and flexible, allowing components of all sizes and complexities to be coated consistently and evenly. Dual Metallising has over the course of three decades become a market leader not only in spraying polymers but also various glass and metal substrates. We have all the facilities in place to ensure your components are finished to the very highest standard. Find out more about our paint spraying services by visiting Dual Metallising online.

Vacuum Metallising

At our facility in Birmingham we have four vacuum metallising systems that allow us to offer various different finishes. All of these are fully automatic, ensuring excellent accuracy and repeatability throughout the finishing process. The maximum component size we can metallise is 560mm x 960mm, although we can accommodate larger items in certain circumstances. Our facilities enable us to metallise on most inert substrates, the only real exception being acetal polymers. The service we provide can also include the application of a polymeric layer to give added protection to the component after metallisation. You can find out more by visiting Dual Metallising online.

Plastic Injection Moulding

By continually investing in our moulding department, we have been able to expand our injection moulding services year upon year for the last two decades. We now have six modern microprocessor-controlled machines offering clamping capacities from 20 to 250 tonnes and shot weights up to 800 grams in most polymers. Having both moulding and finishing systems under one roof means we can offer a comprehensive manufacturing service for our customers. 

If you would like to discuss your plastic injection moulding requirements with one of our experts, just give us a call or send your enquiry via email. Contact details are provided at the top of this page. 


The ability to carry out both moulding and vacuum deposition processes means we can offer complete, finished reflectors to customer specifications. They can be made from various ABS compounds and most common polymers, including PPS, DMC, PC and ULTEM.  The production of prototype reflectors is an area of particular expertise for the team at Dual Metallising. We also specialise in the re-metallisation of headlight reflectors for classic and modern cars. Find out more about this service by visiting Dual Metallising online.

Prototype & Promotional Products

We have established an enviable reputation within the prototyping and point of sale sectors for our ability to produce parts both quickly and cost-effectively. The company has a proven track record of delivering parts on time and to budget, with turnaround times of just a few hours. We are able to vacuum form and metallise a range of polymers, including PS, PC, PET and ABS. 

One of the areas in which we specialise is the production of promotional clocks. You can see some of these on our website. Clocks can be spray painted with your corporate colours or metallised to resemble gold, chrome or other metallic colours. 

EMC Shielding

Plastic components used in the production of electrical equipment will usually need to have EMI shielding. This prevents them from radiating or conducting electromagnetic energy and also stops them from being susceptible to outside energy sources. 

The application of electromagnetically compatible (EMC) coatings to prevent interference is one of our specialities. Visit us online or get in touch to find out more. 


At Dual Metallising we are wholly committed to the provision of a quality service and the delivery of quality finished products. To this end we implement a quality control and assurance system that conforms to the International Quality Management Systems Standard EN ISO 9001:2008. This is constantly reviewed in line with our quality objectives.
