Decorative Chrome Plating

Decorative chrome plating is a Master Finish specialty! In this plating application, the thin chromium layer protects the nickel from oxidation and tarnish while providing the bright bluish tint we all recognize as bright decorative chrome.

Decorative Chrome Plating Bath Process

Master Finish Company uses two types of decorative chrome plating baths—traditional hexavalent chromium plating and trivalent chromium plating baths. Our hexavalent chrome plating bath deposits neutral chromium metal onto your component part surfaces in its neutrally charged, non-hazardous molecular form—not to be confused with the hexavalent chromium passivation dips often used as a protective topcoat by zinc platers.

Our trivalent chromium plating baths are hexavalent-chromium-free and deliver a decorative chrome finish appearance very similar to the traditional bright chrome color. Or, we can modify our trivalent chromium baths to provide a rich dark tint to your chrome plated components.

In addition, we also offer a completely chrome-free decorative plating alternative, our nickel-tungsten-cobalt alloy, as a protective topcoat in lieu of chromium—applied to small steel and brass components in our automated barrel plating line.
