How It Works

OUR SPRAY CHROME SYSTEM

Cosmichrome is a patented hybrid paint and plating system that allows you to produce a chrome-like finish on almost anything.

COSMICHROME,

SIMPLE STEPS, GREAT RESULTS

The Cosmichrome system can be applied over any substrate that is of a porous material such as wood, plaster, urethane, foam, etc. With a wide array of colors, including most popular options such as gold, bronze, black and brass, our system makes it simple to produce the most upscale look and feel.

Cosmichrome meets many OEM automotive paint standards.

STEPS INVOLVED IN THE PROCESS

1. Basecoat

The raw surface needs to be prepared very smoothly prior to the application of the Cosmichrome basecoat. Spray the basecoat over the object uniformly and allow it to dry.

2. Air Drying/Baking

You can allow the basecoat to air dry naturally at room temperature for 24 hours, or you may bake the basecoat for 1 hour at 60°C/140°F.

3. Plasma Treatment

Use a propane torch that produces a blue flame only. Pass the flame over the dried basecoat assuring the flame comes in contact with the surface.

4. Activator

Spraying the activator over the surface. This will prepare the basecoat to accept the metal.

5. Plating

This is a chemical reaction that takes place when two products are sprayed simultaneously from the spray gun, producing a perfect metal reflective finish.

6. Topcoat

The topcoat is designed to seal and protect the metal. You can also give it the color of your choice by adding any of our various colors to the topcoat.

WE STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE

Cosmichrome is a winning alternative when conventional plating technologies are unsuitable due to cost, size, design, substrate or environmental issues.

MAIN ADVANTAGES

Why Cosmichrome is the GOLD STANDARD in its industry.

WON'T YELLOW FROM THE SUN

Our topcoat aside from being extremely simple to apply, never discolors from sun exposure and doesn’t turn yellow.

SUPERIOR ADHESION

Our basecoat can’t be over dried and therefore, there is no risk of losing intra-coating adhesion. In fact the drier our basecoat, the better the adhesion and gloss.

CHEMICALS LONG TERM SHELF LIFE

Cosmichrome’s mixed plating chemicals are long lasting. Once they are opened and/or mixed, they can last up to 90 days.

FLEXIBLE COATING

When the Cosmichrome topcoat has dried, it gets very hard and remains flexible. For this reason, Cosmichrome is often used in fields far from more conventional ones.
