ELECTROPLATING[ 1 ][ 2 ]

Bright Nickel Chrome Plating

  • Most common of the decorative finishes
  • Combination of plating involving base coatings of nickel or copper and nickel, and a final outer layer of chrome
  • Applications: automotive parts, store fixtures, furniture, tools

Nickel Plating

  • One of the most commonly plated metals, nickel is often applied over copper and under chrome plating for decorative finishes
  • A hard, reflective surface, which provides resistance to wear and can be soldered
  • As nickel is not very ductile or cannot easily be stretched, parts should ideally be formed into their final shape before plating
  • Applications: automotive parts, furniture, fireplace frames and doors

Gold Plating

  • Premium quality alternative to brass decorative finish as gold does not tarnish
  • The 24K gold solution is hardened with nickel content in a specially formulated bath
  • Applications: fireplace frames and doors, bathroom fixtures, exclusive furniture

Brass Plating

  • Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc
  • Commonly used for decorative purposes, a thin plating is applied over bright nickel or other plating. Heavier coatings can be buffed to a bright smooth finish
  • Applications: fireplace frames and doors, lighting fixtures, furniture
