Hydrochrome Extreme® our hardwearing reflective coating. The system is sold solely in kit form with each kit containing the correct amount of basecoat, silvering solutions, and topcoat required for each size. The system can be used on automotive projects as well as general exterior use of on interior items needing a strong finish. The coating creates a beautiful, highly reflective finish, which can be left as bright white chrome or coloured using candy tints. Hydrochrome Extreme® will pass a crosshatch adhesion test (feel free to try for yourself on one of our sample cards) and can be made even more hardwearing by combining it with our new Crystal Clear™ Topcoat which will give the coating a 9H pencil hardness. A dual nozzle spray gun must be used to lay down the silvering solutions for this kit.
