Method for metallizing a component, comprising a first part (1), made of a first material (e.g. polymer), and a second part (2), made of a second material (e.g. polymer). A metallizing seed layer (6), e.g. catalytic to the subsequent chemical metallization process, is applied at the surface of the component, after which the surface of the component, including the metallizing seed layer, is exposed to a solvent (7) in which the surface of the first part (1) is, and the surface of the second part (2) is not soluble. In a following step the surface of the component is exposed to a metallizing environment (9) that, however, will only be metallized on the surface of the second component part.
