Chrome Plating Perth

At Kustom Chrome, we offer chrome electroplating services in Perth, guaranteeing a high-quality finish at a reasonable price. Chrome plating involves electroplating a thin layer of chrome onto a metal object. Chrome has many benefits and unlike gold or brass plating, chrome plated objects need no further protection, as it forms a very hard oxide coating which protects the surface from further wear. Chrome finishes are well known for their shiny finish and blue, cool toned hue. We are able to chrome plate a range of objects including car parts, motorbike parts, tap ware, automotive decals, furniture and tools, to give them a luxury, high quality finish.

Types of Chrome Plating

At Kustom chrome, we offer a range of chrome plating services and are able to chrome plate objects made from steel, aluminium and copper alloys. Depending on your requirements and desired finish, we can help you choose the most appropriate type of chrome plating. We offer both decorative and brushed chrome plating:

Decorative Chrome Plating

Decorative chrome is what you will recognise as that shiny, mirror-like, polished finish on motorcycles or vintage cars. It has a very aesthetically pleasing, bright finish which makes it ideal for decorative features such as tapware or furniture. The metal objects take on this high-quality finish from being coated over bright nickel with a high polish. Decorative chrome also gives the object a highly durable, corrosion resistant finish, making it a very popular choice.

Brushed Satin Chrome Plating

Most decorative finishes tend to have a bright, shiny finish. However, chrome plating can also be made to have a matte or satin finished if desired. It will take on the same colour of the chrome, but without the shiny, reflective surface. This may be desirable to match other fittings such as to match brushed stainless steel or aluminium fittings. Brushed chrome is achieved by plating chrome onto a satin nickel.
