About Us: PhD chemist, William Peacock, founded Peacock Laboratories in the early 1930’s. The company started out as a manufacturer of mirrors and silvering solutions. This was back during the time when mirrors were handmade by skilled craftsmen, rendering them both highly prized and expensive. The silver spraying technology developed by our company helped pave the path to automated mirror manufacturing in that thousands of mirrors could be produced in a day, rendering the products suddenly very inexpensive and universally available. Many years later, our company set foot into the coatings and spray-on chrome industries, introducing Permalac, a solvent-based clearcoat lacquer that is incredibly user-friendly, yet exceptionally durable and effective, as well as PChrome, a silver-based, spray-on-chrome suite of chemicals which serves as an economical and safer alternative to traditional chrome plating.
PChrome is a product which uses the original silver spraying technique that was first developed by Dr. Peacock in the 1930s. The PChrome suite can be used to create the same mirror-type, high-gleam finish that chrome has. It is highly versatile and can be used in auto/motorcycle shops, artist studios, or in manufacturing processes to give a chrome finish to many different surfaces. Unlike traditional chroming, the application of our PChrome spray-on chrome does not require the use of the potentially toxic and hazardous acid baths required by traditional chrome plating. We pride ourselves in being able to provide our customers with a durable product that gives them the look and feel they want while also having a substantially smaller environmental impact and fewer health concerns. PChrome can be used on many different types of substrates, including metal, glass, plastic, ceramic and more. This is because we have also developed specialized sensitizers that prime these non-metallic surfaces so that our PChrome spray-on chrome will bind well to them. Our PChrome spray can be applied using our double-nozzle silver spray gun. These guns provide the even and almost instantaneous spray applications our customers love. The application process is easy, requiring just a few simple applications that can be completed directly at your site. PChrome is an excellent choice for artists, motorcycle shops, auto body shops, automotive restorers, hobbyists, remote control enthusiasts, craftspeople and anyone else who wants the look of chrome. Our product is substantially less expensive than traditional plating, yet it still gives the same high-gleam finish, feel, and look for about 25 percent of the cost.
