que tal, has tenido problema con el acabado despues de seis meses? en otro foro alguien de Nicaragua dice que el clear no resiste ó presenta permeabilidad, me pregunto si usando un CPC de Eastman ó anticorrosivos hibridos de Halox ayudarían, creo voy a diseñar este sistema en México ya que tengo acceso a los materiales, agradecería que nos apoyaramos mutuamente, saludos

PS am not really sure if i must use english to post but let me know
english is a must here, but its ok buddy I will be glad to help you out, I was the one that stated that in 6 months spectra chrome clear did failed(with pics of a guy that use spectra, I have not been able to test them yet), but I believe that a good clear coat and enough of it(about 3 to 4 coats) is enough to protect it after 6 months,

Ok then am gonna use english, ok i told you that am about to try this system here in Mex, i did a research on how to get them raw chemicals, and i already did with them AgNO3 and SnCl2, with the last one am gonna have to do a more deeper research due the fact that in the market there are three types: anhydrous, dihydrate and pentahydrate,  also i was thinking about giving the fresh silver deposition a protective layer of SnCl2, have you tried this out yet? and then the poly topcoat, also, if you happen to need any help on your water and solvent based coatings feel free to ask me about resins and additives

I´ve been thinking about using some kind of passivation on the silver layer but so far the only experiment that I have done with this in mind has not produce any good results, I have tried spraying the tin for silver(sensitizer) on a fresh silver layer but it destroys the silver layer, I think is the acidic nature of the stannous chloride. but then again the silver layer is very thin and weak, in a hot day i was sweating alot and one sweat drop on the silver layer and it left a mark..

its actually a silver mirror formula that I bought off the internet, you see when you are dealing with this process you want to reduce the complexity as much as possible, eliminating the variables will give you better results, I did try a home made silvering formula but it was not giving me the consistency needed for a business

2k means it has been catalized with a hardener, thats all, I only use this type of coating because it has good quality and durability
