SEEKING PLASTIC CHROME PLATING EQUIPMENT


2001

WE PRODUCE AND COMMERCIALIZE PLASTIC LAMPS, AND WE HAVE OUTSOURCING TO CHROME PLATE THEM. WE ARE INTERESTED IN MACHINERY TO CHROME PLATE THESE PARTS. WE CALL THIS PROCESS "METALLIZING", AND ARE VERY INTERESTED IN EQUIPMENT TO PROCESS OUR OWN MATERIAL.

THANKS A LOT.

Although the lamps may be shiny, I very strongly doubt that these plastic lamps are chrome plated, Bernardino. Chromium is a strong light and heat absorber and would not be used for reflective purposes. My first guess is that these lamps are vacuum metallized with aluminum.

You need to determine exactly what finish you require before you can buy machinery to apply it. Good luck.
