For the look and feel of carbon fiber in chrome silver, try Barracuda. It looks just like silver Texalium, but better! Barracuda has a deep, saturated silver appearance, unlike Texalium. This high gloss silver sheet is made of a woven silver aluminized glass, complete with a metallic shine that gives it a high tech look. It’s a great look for automotive or boat interior trim or other decorative applications.
In our very thinnest sheet at .014” thick (roughly 1/100”), the veneer is so thin, you can almost see through the cross-weave if you hold it up to the light. It has the feel of a stiff paper and will wrap around a 1” pipe. It only bends in one direction, so its best suited for application on flat surfaces or pipes. It will not lie flat on compound curves, convex or concave surfaces.
This sheet has a high gloss finish on one side and is pre-textured on the back to bond to any surface, using our 3M high-performance double-sided adhesive. (Satin finish is also available as a custom order.) It can be cut with scissors, a paper cutter, or a razor knife. No other sanding or prep work is required.
