POLISHED CHROME FINISH
This finish is used for durability and eye appeal. At South Shore Plating Co., Inc. we use triple plating process of copper, nickel and chrome. The use of nickel promotes better color and wear, nickel also promotes rust resistance. Each piece to be plated is polished to a mirror finish between operations.
SATIN OR BRUSHED CHROME FINISH
The process used is the same as described above, but in the final stage an extra polishing process is performed using a special wheel to provide a grained finish to distress the surface of the piece, therefore providing a dull finish, rather than a mirror finish.
Bright nickel provides a softer, warmer finish than the polished chrome finish. The process involves copper plating and nickel plating polished to a mirror finish. This finish requires more care than chrome as it will tarnish over time if not coated in lacquer.
SATIN NICKEL FINISH
This finish is the same as described above, except that in the final stage, an extra step is involved using a graining wheel to distress the surface.
This is a decorative finish only and does not wear well unless coated with lacquer. The process required uses copper, nickel and then gold, with the piece polished to a mirror finish between each process. Powder coating is also available.
