I am working on a new type of light tube amplifier, and wish to coat the inside diametre of my 10 " light tube amplifier with silver.

I am not a competent chemist, but I understand their is a method using a silver acetate solution and a hot azeton stream for drying, followed by baking.

Are you familiar with these silver coating technique ?

Thanking you for your kind comments.


PS: I would like to share the merits of my light tube design with this forum once I have build and tested my first instrument. Thank you.
