In addition to all these great new features it still has all the features from our previous Master System.
Cosmichrome® is a patented spray chrome system. It’s a hybrid of proprietary paints and plating chemicals work together to allow you to spray a virtual chrome finish on nearly anything. Plastics, metals, ceramics, glass and even wood can be chromed. The end result is a finish that’s visually identical to chrome electroplating. Because Cosmichrome is sprayed on in a paint booth it eliminates size restrictions on the parts you chrome because tank size. Cosmichrome is the only spray chrome durable enough for many OEM uses. While most spray chrome systems are notoriously difficult to use, Cosmichrome is really different. We made the process as easy as possible with our patented machine and process. Not only is Cosmichrome the easiest spray chrome to apply, it is also the most durable.

Just wash Cosmichrome base coated part with our new Base Coat Cleaner and a soft paper towel. It’s totally safe. No scratches or fingerprints left behind to show in the metal. If you have used a competing system, you already know that touching the competing base coats will ruin your part 🙁 . You have to sand the part down and start over. Perhaps your cat ran across your perfect base coat finish. Maybe your assistant was eating a greasy burger and decided to move your base coated parts for you and left greasy fingerprints on the helmet you were about to chrome. Simply and safely wash the contaminants away with our base coat cleaner. :). This is a really unique and amazing feature that saves hours of lost time and do-overs.
No one needs angry customers returning parts to be redone because they turned yellow after a few months. Competing spray chrome paints are notorious for turning yellow after a few months.

One gun sprays all the chemicals. Simply click the red select button to proceed to the next step. LED lights indicate the chemical in use. This patented technology prevents mysterious random streaks and stains that plague other spray chrome products.
We utilize advanced coating technology such as plasma treatment in our chrome paint process. It simplifies the spray chrome process and assure excellent adhesion. Brief exposure to plasma alters the distribution and density of electrons on the base coat’s surface. Because plasma polarizes surface molecules, adhesion of the metal onto the base coat is incredible. As a result, removing the metal layer with tape is impossible. This advanced feature is not available with competing systems. It’s just one of our many strengths and advantages, Even more importantly, plasma treatment eliminates streaks, stains and foggy chrome that plague competing spray chrome systems.

2. When the base coat is dried properly it is plated with Cosmichrome using one of the Cosmichrome machines. The specific plating steps are:
A: No. The metallic coating won’t adhere to other primers and other topcoats will not adhere to the metallic layer and will also discolor the metallic layer. Only original Cosmichrome™ coatings will provide intra-coating adhesion, accurate color and durability. You can apply your own paints above and below Cosmichrome™ but they can’t be substitued in place of the Cosmichrome™ paints.
A: No. Cosmichrome has been on the market nearly six years. Cosmichrome has a proven track record. Our gallery pages show work done by many of our customers over the years. No competeing spray chrome product can match the durabilty and sucess of Cosmichrome.
A: No. Cosmichrome VU-15 is an automotive quality topcoat. If you decide to use another name brand topcoat over the VU-15 you must let the VU-15 dry at least 3 days before applying another topcoat to eliminate the danger of melting through the VU-15 and which could cause the finish to yellow. VU-15 will not yellow. Name brand topcoats will eventually turn yellow if the touch the Cosmichrome plating layer.
A: No. Cosmichrome VU-15 is all you will likely need. If you know your parts will be subject to extreme conditions then consider applying additional clearcoats after the VU-15 has dried at least 1 day.
A: To keep dust out of the coating and to provide a proper working environment.
A: No, The maximum temperature is 350ºF/ 174ºC. Even electroplated chromium plating will discolor on many high temperature parts. Many plastics melt well below these temperatures.
A. Including drying times and baking, the process takes about 4 1/2 hours.
A. One must be careful to heat the parts evenly and to the correct temperature. Lights tend to heat unevenly. Its better to let the parts dry at room temperature than to heat them unevenly. If you make an enclosed “oven” with a black interior and use the lights to heat the walls of the oven you will have better luck with infrared lights. Use an infrared thermometer to check the temperature of the entire part to make sure its being heated evenly.
A. Not necessarily. We have plenty of sucessful users that had little painting experience but were willing to learn. Even experienced painters must be willing to learn some new techniques to apply Cosmichrome™. The plating part of the process is not painting and must be learned whether or not you have much painting experience.
A. No. Cosmichrome™ is made by Cosmichrome™, Inc. in Canada. We have used competing products and found them to be terribly inferior to Cosmichrome™. All Cosmichrome components are made by Cosmichrome, Inc. They do not merely re-label other products.
When shopping for a spray chrome system be sure to do your research. Study reviews on blogs, Youtube and get references. There are many copycat products on the market and none of them provide the technology and quality results of Cosmichrome. We hear from unfortunate people nearly every day about the system they have providing disappointing results. Even if they can occasionally make acceptable looking parts they will likely turn yellow in a few weeks or months. Cosmichrome is guaranteed not to turn yellow, a problem that plagues competing systems.
