A Comprehensive Finishing Service

Here are some of the items we frequently plate and which metals we often plate them in:

  • Restoration of antiques in gold, chrome, or Florentine bronze
  • Bathroom taps in chrome or gold plating
  • Car and motorcycle parts in chrome or nickel
  • Trophies in gold, bronze or chrome
  • Badges (for cars, motorcycles, etc.) in chrome or gold
  • Electrical components in tin, silver or copper

Each metal plate is different, and each plating metal has its distinct advantages. Each metal also requires a different process for metal polishing. Nickel plating is ideal if you need a hard finish to prevent wear and corrosion, which is why it’s commonly used in coating car and motorcycle parts. Chrome, gold, bronze, and copper are better suited for decorative finishing.

If you’re unsure what the best metal specifications are for your applications, contact us and we’ll advise you obligation free.
