metallizing is a process which
a simulated chrome finish is applied to a non-porous
substrate such as plastic, metal or glass. This
is done under a vacuum atmosphere by evaporating an extremely
thin layer of aluminum onto the
surface to be coated. The machine used to perform
the operation is called a vacuum metallizer.
A vacuum metallized finish bonds to almost any
surface resulting in a gleaming product visually
indistinguishable from an electroplated part.
Vacuum metallizing can be used to coat non-conductive
or difficult-to-plate materials such as plastics,
glass and non-ferrous metals.
vacuum metallized finish enhances the smoothness
of the base material often eliminating the need
for expensive polishing procedures and is therefore
generally less expensive than electroplating.
Range of Finishes
metallizing offers a wide range of finishes simulating
gold, brass, bright aluminum and other colors.
company provides all of these advantages without
the use of toxic chemicals normally associated
with the electroplating process.
