We are looking for companies that can chrome plate plastic, preferably on the West Coast (USA), but we will consider other locations as well.
We have been working with a company in LA. Their quality and service has been less than satisfactory - which might be one of the reasons they are shuting down their production today
Can anybody help?
Look for a company that does “Vacuum Plating”. This is the prefered way to achieve a “chrome” finish on plastic.
Cheers and Good Luck!
Check the Detroit area…there are 3-4
Is vacuum metalizing as suitable as actual chroming in terms of looks and recistance to wear? (We are doing exterior car/truck accessories).
If anyone is needing this for prototyping, this is the best source I have found, and use regularly.

Awsome parts and they are one of the few who have 7 different colors including gold and titainium. Most of all the specialize in Metalizing StereoLith parts.
