About Us: PhD chemist, William Peacock, founded Peacock Laboratories in the early 1930’s. The company started out as a manufacturer of mirrors and silvering solutions. This was back during the time when mirrors were handmade by skilled craftsmen, rendering them both highly prized and expensive. The silver spraying technology developed by our company helped pave the path to automated mirror manufacturing in that thousands of mirrors could be produced in a day, rendering the products suddenly very inexpensive and universally available. Many years later, our company set foot into the coatings and spray-on chrome industries, introducing Permalac, a solvent-based clearcoat lacquer that is incredibly user-friendly, yet exceptionally durable and effective, as well as PChrome, a silver-based, spray-on-chrome suite of chemicals which serves as an economical and safer alternative to traditional chrome plating.
Permalac evolved from research into the creation of a spray lacquer that would stabilize the silvering on the back of glass mirrors. This extremely hard, self-leveling, and fast-curing lacquer has created interest and excitement in a variety of industries due to its outstanding performance and myriad of feasible applications. Once applied, Permalac completely protects metal, wood, cement substrates from the ravages of UV, salt spray, wind-borne sand, and extremes of weather. It does not alter patinas or surface treatments when applied correctly and preserves architecture, artwork, jewelry, and sculptures to look the same way as they did when first produced.
As a company, Peacock Laboratories, Inc. continues to innovate and improve our coatings, silvering solutions, and spray-on chrome solutions to deliver our best to our clients and product end-users.
