Chrome Reflection Properties

  1. Feb 15, 2013 #1
    Hello,

    I am think of using chrome paint to create a uniquely shaped mirror. I was wondering if anyone has done studies to quantify how much light is reflected from different types of chrome and how much the light scatter. I realize chrome paint isn't the same as chrome, but I couldn't find numbers for either. But then again, there may be a keyword that I'm missing in the search.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Yes - the manufacturer has, ask them.
