MacDermid’s Electrolac UV coating system has enabled the company to expand its Fashion Finishes line to include colored metallic coatings that can be used on heat-sensitive substrates such as plastics, zinc die cast and aluminum. The system applies colored, UV-curable electrophoretic lacquer over nickel and chrome electroplated coatings.
Electrolac UV features low-temperature operation and curing, and can be used to achieve high-gloss or satin finishes with improved corrosion and wear properties.
