Chrome-Effect Film Eliminates Need for Electroplating

Makrofol 3D Metallic FG film boasts a high-quality metallic gloss and a very eye-catching appearance. It is also the first film of its kind that can be cold-formed. This chrome-colored polycarbonate film provides an alternative to the traditional screen-printed mirror finish for films and the electroplating of plastic moldings. Electroplating systems are cost-intensive in terms of investment, maintenance, and staff, and they are often ecologically unsound due to the unavoidable use of chemical baths. Waste resulting from surface defects also has a negative impact on the costs.
