Mirrored plating for rigid plastic sheeting

chrome paint   Gold Touch   J G Nikolas   M and M Metallizing

(2001)

Dear sirs,

I am working on some experimental solar projects and have been looking for high quality reflective materials. Aluminum foil is being used successfully for a solar oven, but I would prefer to use a light weight sheet material where a mirrored surface could be maintained. A friend suggested a chrome plated plastic sheet, but I have not been able to find such a material. The material would have to be rigid enough to remain flat through various temperatures, and light enough that a 12 foot in diameter parabolic dish could be safely manhandled.

Thank you,

I wonder if there is a weatherproof thermoformable mirrorised ("sandwiched mirror coat") sheeting available?

Thank you,
