Stainless Steel - Polished Chrome   
metal plating services

Chroming, or chrome plating, is the process of coating an object with the metal chromium, which creates a silvery, shiny finish. Many silver-looking metal finishes are on the market, but a finish cannot be called chrome plating unless chromium is used in the process. This process is often used to dress up vehicle parts and make them more durable and less likely to rust. Several processes exist to apply chrome, which should only be carried out by professionals since the chemicals used are toxic and can contaminate water supplies if spilled.  Two types of chrome plating are performed at our company. Decorative and hard plating.

Decorative chrome plating is applied to objects to create a shiny, mirror-like finish and to protect against corrosion. A thin layer of chromium is used in this process. The object is first sanded down, then electroplated with copper, then nickel, then bathed in chromium and electrified. Decorative chrome plating usually has a bluish cast.
