Chromium plating (Cr)

A layer of decorative chrome 0.3 – 0.5 microns thick is deposited on the coating of glossy nickel, which gives the item a distinctive bluish gloss of chrome.

Decorative chrome plating can be done on steel, copper, brass and stainless steel items.

The surface intended for chrome plating must be smooth and shiny, so only positions made of light-drawn tubes, cold-rolled sheets or mechanically sanded and polished surfaces are considered.

The anti-corrosion protection of chrome objects is not given by chrome, but by coatings precipitated before chromium – semi-gloss nickel and glossy nickel (duplex nickel).

The thickness of nickel below chromium depends on the site of use of the item and can range from 5 to 40 microns. Decorative chrome is used to protect glossy nickel from atmospheric corrosion (oxidation) and gives the coating a decorative look (high gloss).

maximum dimensions of the item:

  • length: 2.200 mm
  • height: 900 mm
  • width: 450 mm
