What is MirraChrome®?
MirraChrome represents the latest in Reflective Paint Coating Technology. It can be referred to as Chrome spray paint, or Spray Chrome Reflective Paint or Chrome Paint. It's near microscopic particle content provides superior surface orientation. This particle alignment is the key to MirraChrome's shine. While many attempts have been made by others to achieve a "chrome paint" no one has come close. Through a rigorous development process we have established the specific process and coatings to allow MirraChrome to achieve remarkable brilliance and be clearcoated. That's right, clear-coated. Alsa's MirraChrome can be topcoated with high quality automotive rade poly-urethane clearcoat such as Alsa's Speed Clear or any other topcoat without losing its true chrome look.
