MIRROR-LIKE CHROME COMPLETE KIT

Chrome paint is the first product that imitates the closest chrome plating: the preparation is ultra-liquid and of a silver colour, created by evaporation. The imitation is surprising, a silvery plating of only a few microns thick that reflects like a mirror.

We manufacture a paint that is non-toxic, and cost effective thanks to its high concentration.


INSTRUCTIONS OF USE

As long as you follow carefully the instructions and that you are familiar with spraygun painting, you will succeed in applying this perticular product. It requires a simple spraygun (conventional and low pressure ones, airbrushes - select small nozzle size)


SUPPORTS

Can be applied over any type of support: (Wood, Metal, Plastc..) prepared and necessarily covered with a primer.


RESULTS

Properly applied, the chrome effect is at its best when non topcoated.

For this reason, we recommend to apply clearcoat  only when it's necessary. Indeed, when the chrome is topcoated, it will become dull, by the action of solvents. A skilfull and patient painter will achieve without difficulty a beautiful topcoated chrome effect. To clear without following the instructions will remove the chrome finish.


RESISTANCE

Without clearcoat: the paint is sensitive to scratches and friction

Topcoated, it becomes resistant to abrasion, liquids and chemical products like any automotive car body.  NOTE : Given that chrome paint is applied over a background that has not been sanded, it’s not guaranteed against any peeling due to tearing or due to an important shock.

Chrome paint manufactured by StardustColors doesn't yellow and tarnish. It resists to  prolonged exposure to temperatures as high as 250°C.

 

Important Tip: To help promote adhesion with the glossy black background, a rapid flame treatment can be performed (passing briefly the gas flame 1 or 2 times) just prior to the application of the chrome paint. Similarly, to facilitate chrome topcoating without losing the mirror-like effect, a brief flame treatment can be carried out on chrome painting before applying the clearcoat.Important Tip: To help promote adhesion with the glossy black background, a rapid flame treatment can be performed (passing briefly the gas flame 1 or 2 times) just prior to the application of the chrome paint.

INDUSTRIAL VERSION :
StardustColors proposes an industrial chrome paint system, that provides excellent adhesion and accelerated implementation through baking.
There are countless application possibilities: Equipment, mobile, bottles, decoration, etc.

CHROME CANDY :

By adding transparent shades (see Section CANDY) to the topcoat, you can colour the chrome as you wish.

 

MIRROR EFFECT:

Painted on the inside of a transparent support, such as a window or other, it will create a reflection like a mirror.

METHOD AND ADVICE :

 3-steps process to follow : Primer, Chrome Paint, Clearcoat

1. Apply the undercoat:  Polyurethane glossy black lacquer, by mixing 2 parts lacquer with 1 part hardener. Thin at 10% max. To obtain a perfect hard surface, let dry for at least 96h (or best, 14 days for maximum results). The most important to achieve a beautiful mirror-like effect lies in the preparation of the black undercoat: this later should be as smooth, hard and lacquered as possible! Do not sand nor use degreaser. Simply clean the dust with a dry and soft piece of cloth.

2. Shake well the chrome before use (the product is ready for use). Set up a medium pressure and spray successive very thin passes (around 5). It's important to have very thin coats (press slightly on the trigger) and never apply thick coats. Allow to dry a few seconds between each pass  and watch the chrome’s formation during the evaporation that happens in a few seconds.  Let dry at room temperature for at least 48h. The more you let dry, (up to 14 days), the harder and the more resistant becomes the chrome, which will allow an easier topcoating, if needed. Baking possible.

3. Topcoating is not necessary and intended for parts that are subject to abrasion and outdoors conditions such as rain. For pieces that stay indoors and that are not subject to repeated contacts and friction, we don't recommend to clear them: without the clearcoat, you will achieve a maximum chrome aspect.

Instructions: Apply our topcoat HS (2 parts clearcoat + 1 part hardener + 10% thinner): Begin by 4 passes extremely dry, allowing 1 to 2 minutes between each depending of the temperature. And only after apply normally the topcoat. The final result will depend of the thinness of the passes, but as well of the skill and patience of the painter.

Tips: 

The Chrome effect quality depends all on the gloss and hardness of the basecoat: the dryer is the basecoat, the better the chrome effect will be.

To achieve the best chrome effect, we recommend an extended basecoat drying time: The basecoat can dry from 2 to 14 days at room Temperature (20°C) and it can be cured with oven to accelerate the process, for exemple 60°C : 24h or up to 180°C / 30minutes
