Although I am not expert need more details, what is being painted, and primer, etc.......Since you indicated 'chrome' I was thinking metal
object being painted, could be wrong. I have had good luck painting metail door fixtures after sanding, cleaning, and applying a metal type primer.

I could be wrong but more details about the project would help. There are quite a few experts here that would chime in for you.

Good Luck!

Those spray chrome finishes are specialty. Did you use the recommended primer for the material you were painting? Did the can say the finish could be clear coated? Did you use the recommended product?
