Chrome Plating gives a mirror like finish and is used on many items. All bathroom accessories are mainly chrome plated and tend to lose the chrome at some point. These items as with all chrome items can be stripped of there original chrome and plated in gold or silver to give that personal preference.

A lot of car emblems are Chrome Plated and can be stripped of the Chrome and Gold Plated or Silver Plated.
The process we use is known as Brush Plating or Selective Plating. Brush Plating because it is applied in a brush like manner and Selective Plating because you can be selective on the item being plated. This is a method of electroplating, where, concentrated plating solutions are used on the selected area without the need for using large tanks.
The choice of solution is applied to the article to be plated, using an absorbent material wrapped around an anode. The material is then saturated in the chosen plating solution, Gold, Silver, Copper or Nickel and applied to the item using an electrical current. This process is similar to the dipping method but applied differently. This process also uses more concentrated chemicals and gives a faster build up of metal. GoldPlating, SilverPlating & NickelPlating are all electroplated in this way apart from some larger items that need to be electroplated using a tank.
