We've printed onto Kernow Metalik chrome on our Latex 360 without issue.
Cutting is.... fun, we ended up cutting around the Summa req marks and removing a patch media to revel the backing.

Here a test print from the sample roll

I have samples here for inkjet Chrome, Gold and Rose gold, I think they came from Perfect Colours, I may be wrong but try them.

Prints fine, though I did lower the curing temp a little, cutting is, as mentioned above, interesting.. I put some frosted vinyl / clear matt lam over the reg marks and it worked fine.
