The fine folks at Avalon King wrote an unsolicited review of Cosmichrome. The article explains Cosmichrome in depth. It covers the invention of chrome electroplating and explains in detail the Cosmichrome process, its advantages, and its exclusive non-yellowing spray chrome process.
Off Axis Paint is a certified NASCAR helmet painter. They paint a considerable number of the helmets worn by NASCAR drivers. Off Axis Teamed up with Cosmichrome to offer chrome helmets to the drivers. We are proud they selected Cosmichrome as their spray chrome. Cosmichrome is the only spray chrome that can meet the demands of Off Axis Paint. The taping and cutting used to produce their designs would destroy competing spray chrome products. Those spray on chromes would just peel apart when the tape is removed. Cosmichrome won’t fail cutting and taping.

We are always very busy at the SEMA Show. Cosmichrome at the 2019 SEMA Show was no exception. One reason we are so busy is that we do live demonstrations at the show right in our booth. We built a mini spray booth to apply the water based layer of our process. Live demonstrations give visitors a chance to try Cosmichrome’s unique process for themselves.
The Patented E-Gun Select™ makes the process easy enough that anyone can apply the chrome finish. There’s not guessing if the chemicals are spraying at the correct ratio. The metal comes out perfect even for absolute beginners.
You’ll get to see much of the rest of the 2019 Cosmichrome booth in this video too. One of our show cars, lots of customer made helmets and other amazing spray chrome parts coated with the only non yellowing spray chrome on Earth.
Thanks to Camaro Tech for filming this clip.

When you are spray a finish as smooth and reflective as Cosmichrome you need the finest paint guns to get a perfectly smooth finish. An inferior paint gun will produce a rough, orange peel finish in the chrome. You can’t hide orange peel in a finish that needs to be as smooth as chrome plating.
Using the right paint gun will make a remarkable difference in the quality of your final Cosmichrome finish. Remember, you are trying to simulate very smooth chrome electroplating. An inexpensive paint gun will not perform well enough to give the best results. You spent the money on the right Spray Chrome machine when you bought a Cosmichrome system. Get the right paint gun too.
We recommend the SATAjet 5000B HVLP with a 1.3mm tip. The digital model is shown below. A standard model is also available for a lower price. Please tell us which model you prefer.
Be sure to see us at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. This will be our 27th year at the SEMA show! There will be show specials, demonstrations and new products. November 5th-9th, 2019

Cosmichrome is the only spray chrome that allows you to safely and easily remove the spray chrome metal without harming the base coat. If you notice a defect in your plating you can just remove the silver with bleach, then re-spray the Cosmichrome! No need to sand and re-apply the base coat!
Touching the base coat of competing spray chrome products is forbidden. Touching the base coat ruins their base coat finish and it will have to be sanded and re-applied. This drawback can add days to your project, sanding and waiting for base coat to dry. Cosmichrome allows you to simply remove the metal layer and re-spray the metal. This is a major technical advancement in spray chrome. Everyone makes a mistake once in a while.
Achieving a perfect chrome spray plating is easy when you remain aware of all the parameters that can have an impact on the results. Like all professional paint projects, these parameters range from temperature, humidity, dust, fingerprints, and so on. Thankfully, there is a way to salvage your part without having to sand your part and re-apply the base coat! Bleaching the base coat to re-plate a part is easy to do with Cosmichrome BCL base coat.
BLEACH THE PART!
*NOTE: This process can only be done if the Topcoat has not yet been applied to the part.*
The part that needs re-plating will need the plating to first be removed.
We begin this process by saturating our soft blue shop towels into the cup of bleach. After it is well saturated, gently rub the bleach into the part. The chrome should begin to quickly dissolve and reveal the Basecoat underneath. Continue to rub and wipe away the plating until all the plating is removed. Re-soak your shop towel in bleach and remove any residual plating residue. Grab a new shop towel, soak in bleach and wipe down the piece as a final rundown. Now rinse your part very thoroughly with distilled water to remove any leftover bleach. Be aware that any leftover bleach will oxidize the metal and make the product look yellow! So rinse very well!
Now that the old plating is gone, we can prepare the part for re-plating.
Apply Cosmichrome Base Coat Cleaner to the part to clean the base coat for re-plating. Gently rub in the Basecoat Cleaner into the part. Be careful to not apply too much pressure. Now, rinse away Basecoat Cleaner with distilled water.
Now re-flame the part to prepare it for re-plating. After that, apply the A22 Activator solution. This activates the Basecoat for plating adhesion. Rinse again with distilled water, getting rid of any excess A22.
Time for re-plating.
Apply G4 & G5 plating solutions. Rinse with distilled water.
Congratulations! You have successfully re-plated a part!

When the Hard Rock Casino needed dozens of chrome guitars, they contacted Cosmichrome. Cosmichrome allows you to apply a chrome like finish to nearly any object and guitars are perfect for it. Because Cosmichrome is sprayed on in a paint booth it can be applied to nearly anything you can paint. Commonly called spray chrome, Cosmichrome is the only finish of its kind guaranteed not to turn yellow from sun exposure. This project is for the Hard Rock Casino. They look incredible.
These guitars made of wood. They were coated by http://coatofchrome.com for installation at the Hard Rock Casino. Don Pirre at Coat of Chrome has more than 15 years of spray chrome expertise.
