Greetings, All

I have a tube which I would like to make the inside reflective. Does
anyone know if there is a reflective type of spray or dip that I can coat
the inside of the tube with to give it a mirror type of coating?

TIA

Vapor-coat aluminizing is one solution. Generally not practical on a
home/small-scale basis, though depending on your tube size and how many
you have to do, perhaps you can convince UVIRA to do them for you.

Alternatively, there is now aluminum-based chrome paint that can be
applied with an ordinary spray gun or airbrush (or, one presumes, by dip
or flow coating) and actually, really achieves specularity:

Short movie of it being applied to a flexible plastic item is at

(Ignore the yo-bling-bling-strizzeet-yo moron at the beginning; the rest
of the movie's worth it)

Company website is http://alsacorp.com/index.htm , and the product's
called MirraChrome.
