Translucent mirror finish on acrylic?


I am looking for a supplier who can apply a semi-mirror finish (possibly by sputtering) onto clear acrylic for prototype and/or production automotive use. The finish must have a high reflective quality while maintaining some translucence. Thank you for your responses.

I am interested in purchasing acrylic sheets with half silvering on one side. Please contact me if you sell such a product or know where I could purchase such a product. Our vision is to use this material in relatively large quantity. We are also interested in techniques to place half silvering on an acrylic sheet in a pattern rather than uniformly across the sheet. Are there techniques to achieve this goal at a cost compatible with the automotive industry.?
