Default Coated Mirrors for CO2 lasers and 445nM

Hey guys.
Still really new to the forum, but curious about something.
My friend just ordered a 2W 445 nm from lucklasers.com and we got to brainstorming about how we could play with the beam's properties. I started thinking of reflecting/rerouting the beam with mirrors. A search came up more or less inconclusive, so searching google I found Dia 25 mm Mo Reflective Mirror Reflector for CO2 Laser 50.8 mm focal JoyFay. Would the coating, obviously intended for a CO2 laser, just absorb too much of the beam from a 445? Has anyone tried this move before?
Thoughts on this are appreciated.

OOps! Put in wrong section. I'll try to get this moved to the 445 nm page.
Sorry

Lasers and mirrors go hand and hand. Get some first surface mirrors for best results.

Thanks for the tip. Was just looking at Dental mirrors, since they are just what the doctor ordered
