Lacquers for High Vacuum Metallising

Vacuum metallisation base and top lacquers for application by spray, flow coat or by dip specially designed for plastic and metallic substrates.

Benefits: fast curing time of base coat lacquers with similar finishing to the galvanic process but with a lower environmental impact. Excellent adhesion even for the most demanding substrates (eg polypropylene).
Very good protection to oxidation, abrasion, aliphatic hydrocarbons, alcohol and perfumes.
