Chemical metallization process, also referred to as catalytic or chemical plating, based on the silver mirror reaction and allows to apply to surfaces shiny metallic coating having high reflective properties. Using the process of chemical metallization specially developed chemical. LK reagents and materials, produces no dimming, white metal mirror coatings with excellent adhesion to the substrate. In carrying out this metallization process does not use corrosive substances, carcinogenic and explosive components of the complexes on the basis of "detonating" silver. The process of surface preparation is the same as before the usual process of painting. Thus, during the process of chemical plating is practically no limitation in size and shape to be coated, it is possible to metallize all synthetic and porous materials, many of which coating even similar in the reflective properties of the coating, with other technologies too difficult or impossible.
Obtained by chemical plating 'chrome' and 'gold' cover, visually indistinguishable from those of the metal coating obtained by galvanic deposition, allowing to take significant market share brilliant decorative chrome plating and gold plating.
"Chrome" by chemical metallization
Mirrored metal coating META-CHROME obtained by chemical plating, using patented equipment for chemical metallization and META-CHROME chemical META-CHROME - only the Russian market metallized coating, which does not yellow from exposure to sunlight. Many presented on the internet and received a similar manner, metallized coating, look great and have a mirror shine, but no one can guarantee that this coating does not darken and does not turn yellow after a few weeks or months. No other metallic coating on the market do not stand 170 * With temperature and do not have such a high UV-resistance, as the reflecting metal coating META-CHROME.

1 When "plating" and "gilding" method of chemical metallization of various parts and products, the main objective is to obtain in this manner, the metal coating is no different from the metal coating obtained by galvanic deposition. Such electroplating, to obtain a high decoration, usually applied on a perfectly smooth, polished or polished metal surfaces. Therefore, to simulate as close as chrome or gold-plated surface, metallic finish should always be applied to the primed surface perfectly smooth.
2 Polyurethane A / m of coatings have good adhesion properties, but with time can produce a darkening of the surface layer of the plating of silver for reaction with sulfur. To improve the adhesive properties of the thermal treatment is carried out (for example, the burner flame), which is used for the formation of coatings on the surface of the carboxyl groups, to improve its "wettability" (prior to sensitization / activation process) and increase thereby adhesion primer coating properties. When heated, the metallized products covered by a / m polyurethane coatings above 130 ° C may be a significant deterioration in adhesion with a layer of metallization.
3 Many polyurethane or akriluretanovye a / m paints with high film formation speed (speed of "linking"), do not have high adhesion with a metallic coating.
4 Kolirovochnye pigments are added to the a / m of paint, do not darken or discolor from exposure to UV radiation. Therefore, even the most expensive A / m lacquers do not have high light resistance because It does not contain in its composition specially selected light stabilizers and UV absorbers. "Light-transmitting" pigments used to color the metallized surface, very "sensitive" to the UV light (sunlight), so when using a / m varnishes, through 6-12 months possible darkening of the metallized surface.

Features of chemical metallization process
Unlike conventional dyeing process, in which during deposition painting material can be uniformly and efficiently paint practically any surface area, the process goes linearly with chemical metallization. When the metallization of large-draining spent reactants occurs on the already metallized surface splashes reagents have not metallized portions of the surface, the water slide, "film" and, consequently, zamuarivanie metallization layer and deterioration of the reflective properties of the metal coating. Therefore, surface area, which can be qualitatively metallized considerably limited and depends on the spray equipment used, and the metallization reagent. At the same time, small in size and simple in form and details of the product can be successfully plated, by using standard kits "home chroming" using conventional spray guns, electrical paint spray guns or just bezkompressornye "equipment" for spraying. But to hold a mirror plating the entire surface area is relatively large in the overall dimensions of products, especially those with complex or recessed portions of the surface, the use of such devices, has not come out. High-quality mirror plating such products is only possible with the use of a professional spray equipment and specially selected, quickly deposited "formulas" metallization. Thus, in the cutscenes and announcements of advertisements on the internet for the sale of equipment for metal, we can often see photos of cars with a mirror coating (most often for this, use the photo Car covered with mirrored vinyl film chrome), but at the same time, photos of individual metallized elements or any video stages of metallization on the web pages are missing. At that time, as shown in photo galleries metallized samples of such resources are usually limited to the shape simple and small in size, parts and products. Comparing with car paint.
