Patented Instagold Flash plates as fast as a high gold content bath!
The INSTAGOLD FLASH SYSTEM uses technology that is so sophisticated yet so simple and cost efficient that you can easily set up your own in-house plating line and save up to 60% of your plating costs. INSTAGOLD FLASH deposits a bright and uniform surface finish via the modern and simple process of non-current immersion plating. The solution is safe and easy to use. Custom designed for the decorative jewelry industry and electronics, InstaGold Flash is far superior to any other gold plating solution.
InstaGold Flash forms a strong chemical bond with the metal surface and features the hardest acid formula. The durability of the finish is superb.
The secret is in the solution. Because the gold adheres to the metal surface through electromotive potentials (like magnets) generated internally by chemical interaction and not by an external force generated by an electric current, the coating of gold is as uniform as the surface.
Technology so advanced . . . It’s Simple to Operate.
The substrate is plated by immersion into the solution for less than one or two minutes. The pieces are then removed from the gold bath rinsed and dried. Finished. The solution is so easy to use that anyone can be an expert gold plater.
SIMPLE TO INSTALL
InstaGold Flash works via immersion therefore complicated electrical connections are obsolete. You no longer need rectifiers, anode and cathode rods, barrels, danglers, and racks.
In the gold plating game . . . The more you use – the more you lose. GOLD SAVINGS Due to the highly advanced chemical technology of InstaGold Flash only 1/3 of the normal amount of gold is used in the plating process. Operating at gold concentrations as low as 3/4 of a pennyweight per gallon, gold losses are negligible. The equipment needed for the immersion process is a simple basket with no contact points, eliminating refining losses normally associated with racks and barrels. With InstaGold Flash, plating at a thickness of only two micro-inches will give you the durability normally achieved with six micro-inches.
IGF is the only gold bath known in the industry that can plate at extremely low gold concentrations. The initial start-up usage concentration of gold is only 1 dwt. (1.5 g) per gallon. However, the industry regularly abuses this rule and operates at an average concentration of 1 gram per gallon to as low as 0.3 grams per gallon. This low gold concentration virtually eliminates gold drag-out losses. Your gold stays in the bath where it belongs. IGF plates as fast or faster than baths containing twenty times the gold. No kidding!
Gold should be added as needed. It is obvious when gold needs to be added when the color is pale, and takes a longer time to deposit.
Dramatic Money Savings Two Ways!
Bath Cost and Gold Useage.

Momo converted this Morgan 3 Wheeler to left hand drive and commissioned Insane Paint to coat it in Cosmichrome with blue transparent accents. You will be able to see Momo’s Chrome Morgan 3 Wheeler at the Los Angeles Car Show.
Insane Paint is famous for their incredible work coating the 50 ft tall Lombardi Trophy that is installed in Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Wisconsin. Home of the Green Bay Packers NFL team. Record Breaking Spray Chrome Project
It looks amazing. Cheap chrome systems can’t do this kind of show quality spray chrome plating.
Insane Paint also buffed and polished the base coat for an even more beautiful and flawless finish.
This record breaking spray chrome project could only have been accomplished with Cosmichrome. An exhaustive and thorough search by the project director led him to the decision to use Cosmichrome. Samples were requested from all the various spray chrome suppliers and none of the samples but Cosmichrome met their standards for beauty, durability and the ability to even begin to accomplish this amazing project. The project was completed by Danny Gokey of Insane Paint. They created a really amazing video of their teamwork and you can enjoy it here.
The project took several months to complete and the finished statue is installed in the new atrium of a professional sports team.
The latest update to the Cosmichrome base coat features a fantastic new feature. If someone accidentally touches the base coat you clean our spray chrome base coat with distilled water and a damp paper towel. Until now the part would dave to be sanded and sprayed with base coat again. It’s simple and easy.
If someone accidentally touches the base coat after it is dry you can clean off the fingerprints without any harm or damage to the final finish. All you have to do is wipe the fingerprints off with a soft paper towel that has been wet with distilled water. Then re-flame the base coat and proceed with plating as usual. This base coat is also extremely easy to apply and is very resistant to runs and drips. As usual the adhesion of the metal and top coat are exceptional.
This new feature solves one of the more demanding requirements of applying spray chrome coatings. Typically their base coats are very sensitive to accidental touches and other types of minor contamination. This would often lead to frustration when an curious coworker would decide to handle and inspect the parts being coated. Now one can just clean the fingerprints off rather than having to sand and reapply the base coat.
Additionally Cosmichrome base coat is still the only base coat that can’t be over dried. The dryer it is the better the adhesion of the metal and top coat. Other products are much more sensitive to over drying and loss of adhesion.
You can let our base coat dry all weekend or even all week and there will be no loss of metallic adhesion.
As always, Cosmichrome is the only spray chrome product guaranteed not to turn yellow. That is just one of the many reasons it is the spray chrome of General Motors, Andretti Autosport and West Coast Customs to name a few.
Rose gold is very fashionable at the moment. We manufacture rose gold for electroplating that is very popular with jewelers and some people are plating car emblems with our brush rose gold too. You can simulate rose gold using Cosmichrome to take advantage of the rose gold surge in popularity. This is a sample of rose gold colored Cosmichrome created in our Montreal office.

We are frequently asked if it is possible to create a hydrographics over chrome using Cosmichrome. We have several customers that do this and achieve incredible results. The following example was provided by our customer St. Louis Chrome. After he applied the complete Cosmichrome finish he used hydrographics or water transfer printing to place this pattern over the Cosmichrome chrome finish. We think the results are stunning.
GM has been using Cosmichrome spray on chrome for nearly ten years. This stunning new Cadillac Elmiraj concept car features Cosmichrome trim, wheels and a new grill design with color tinted Cosmichrome. Jay Leno really appreciates the new grill. The Elmiraj is a large coupe. It is a rather remarkable concept car because it is really close to how a final production model might appear. We are proud to be the spray chrome supplier to General Motors.
West Coast Customs honored us by calling us to help with our second Cosmichrome project with them. Our first project was to completely re-do their famous Audi Tron tribute car after the competing product discolored within a few weeks and the supplier declined to take responsibility for the problem. Having established our reputation with West Coast Customs and helping them out in a pinch they called us when they had another project for Cosmichrome.
This time it was for a project for the West Coast Customs Kid Rock Cadillac limo. We trained the expert painters at West Coast Customs how to use Cosmichrome with their new Master System Select™. The project went well and the gold tinted Cosmichrome looked great. West Coast Customs has used every spray chrome product on the market and Cosmichrome is the only product that worked as advertised and as instructed. We are honored that they trusted Cosmichrome to be a part of another of their incredible projects.
A special thanks to Don Pirre of Coatofchrome.com for helping out.
