  • Look of Chrome Powder Coat?

    Just how similar does Chrome powdercoat look to "real chrome"? Or is it just clear with little silver "flecks" in it? Is there some example pics I can view?

    Not very similar. It looks more like a chrome colored paint...which is really all it is.

    There are some yellow pics in our Restoration Forum. No one has sent us any chrome pictures yet.

      caswell,
      I get a nice shinny finish with the chrome powder. Let me find some pictures and I'll post them.

          ? for 360air

          Hey, the chrome finish looks nice but i have one ?. I see that your suppossed to finish it with a clear coat, do you bake the sliver on first then the clear? Please bear with me as I'm pretty much a complete newbie to this. Thanks- Chad

            Hot Coat Pro has a new Reflective Chrome out and looks allot better then the regular powder chrome. Yes, you would use a top coat. Hot Coat Pro also has a brand new Super High Gloss Clear Coat that you can use. They are both brand new to hit the market. You can find them at http://www.eastwoodco.com

              Is this only chrome powder coat with a clearcoat at top ?

              If it is I must say its a remarkable good result, what is the name of the powders, and who is the producer ?

              This must be tested
              Did you know that it is possible to use every gram of powder if you recycle when coating, and vapors are almost none !
              In a wet paint approx. 80-90 % evaporates into the air. Causing stress on the enviroment !
              1 kg. of powder can cover approx. 10-12 m3
              1 litre. of wet paint covers approx. 2-3 m3

                The pictures were of our chrome powder coat with the clear powder applied.

                Nice to see new faces on this board.
