This technique replicates the look of electroplating on containers. The process involves heating a metallic material in a vacuum chamber until it starts to evaporate. The vaporized metal condenses on and bonds to the container, which is being rotated to help ensure uniform application. After the metalizing process is completed, a protective topcoat is applied to the container.
Advantages of vacuum metalizing:
- Works on plastic
- Conforms to any shape container
- Creates a high- gloss metallic look
