Question:

No, I don't have a question, just information for C.S. on vacuum metallizing relating to the July 1999 issue of Painting Clinic. A good reference is "Metallizing of Plastics" by Harold Narcus, Reinhold Publishing, NY, 1960. It may be hard to find but has a wealth of information on the subject. J.S.

Answer:

Thank you for writing to Painting Clinic. My guess is that the aforementioned reference is more than C.S. wanted to know about vacuum metallizing. In the July 1999 column, I mentioned C.S. restores 1970-1973 Camaros and had trouble finding someone to refinish a pot metal turn-signal housing that had what I believed to be a vacuum metallized reflector. He was talking to electroplaters and should have been talking to vacuum metallizers.

Please don't think my remarks mean I am not grateful. This writer welcomes any and all comments as well as constructive and destructive criticisms.
