We are proud of the service we provide, whilst chrome coating parts we discuss any issues we come across with our customer, sometimes the parts may need a bit of repair work, once we have stripped the parts down to the bare metal we get a better understanding of the condition of the part metal and body.
Once we are happy that the original chrome plating is all removed we check the condition of the parts to see if the metal underneath has enough body and does not have too much rust and corrosion, to check if it needs any repairs, if this is something we have not already discussed with the customer then we contact the customer via phone or email to discuss the parts true condition and the repairs it may need to bring it up to standard, repairs usually mean welding and in some cases welding additional metal plates to build up the body of the part if possible, very rarely when we think a part is beyond repair we ask the customer to source the same part in better condition. If it is not possible to source the part because it's a very rare part then we explore other options, we speak with a local engineering firm to see if we can part build a section of the part and combine with welding and linish polishing in to shape. We do all we possibly can to keep you within your budget and to restore the part to its former glory. Now the part is ready for the remaining process, beginning with degreasing the parts in our gas degreaser which removes all the polishing compounds and grease from the repair and polishing process, once its fully cleaned the part is hung on copper wire and electroplated.
We start with two layers of copper as a solid base followed by the nickel and chrome. We have restored 1000’s of parts over the years. Restoring parts is a challenge, a challenge we enjoy from start to finish.
Please see our Process Gallery for all the steps your parts go through.
Our double copper plating process, particularly the acid copper (2nd Layer of copper) adds thickness to the body of the parts which makes the parts more robust and also results in a better finish then commercial chrome coating.
We can plate on to all types of metal including Mild steel, Stainless Steel, Brass, Die cast and yes even Aluminium. We have a dedicated pre-treatment plant for Aluminium which enables us to achieve high quality plating on Aluminium. There are not many plating companies which can plate on Aluminium as it is often very difficult to plate.

"The quality of work carried out by chromefix was exceptional, they chromed my Daimler majestic major bumpers which were prey to red rust. To a showroom finish, and the metal on the bumpers actually felt thicker, which is testament to the correct amount of plating used. My wife was also impressed with the deep luster finish. I will strongly recommend chromefix to the Daimler Enthusiasts Club. Thanks for a very helpful and friendly service. From the first contact to receipt of the refinished items, I found Chromefix very helpful and efficient. They even organized courier pick up from my home and return on completion."
