Chrome plating, often referred to simply as chrome, is a technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal object. The chromed layer can be decorative, provide corrosion resistance, ease cleaning procedures, or increase surface hardness.
A component to be chrome plated has to go generally through many different stages. The first is to degrease the area to electroplate by removing heavy soiling. A thorough manual cleaning of the parts to remove all residual traces of dirt and surface impurities should be pressed into action. Depending on the substrate, various pretreatments can be done. Placing into the chrome plating vat where it is allowed to warm to solution temperature and then plating current is applied under which the component is left for the required time to attain thickness.
