Chrome Finishing

Chromefix offer a rechroming service for old and new parts, whether it be rechroming household items or rechroming bumpers. The whole process from stripping of old chromium plating, repair and rechroming service from start to finish is all done under one roof. Chromefix will repair chrome making your parts look like new again.

At Chromefix we don't just rechrome parts we work closely with our customers during the rechroming process to discuss the job if there are any issues, this enables us to get the job right and to get it done in the given timeframe.

Our Rechroming process starts with us receiving the parts from our customer which the customer has either dropped in to us, posted in to us via their own courier or we have arranged the collection on the customers behalf via our own courier. Once we have the parts in hand we book them in through our robust booking in system and a job card is allocated. The job is now placed in our cue of jobs and will be started in date order.

The process begins with dismantling, this is something we request the customer to do before we get the parts, however if this has not been already done then the parts dismantled in to individual components, the dismantling process is not always straight forward as quite often the nuts, bolts, screw and rivets are quite rusty and not so easy to take apart.

Once all the parts are split down to individual components we remove any paint and sealant in a paint stripper solution after this stage the parts are individually copper wired ready to hang on the brass buzz bar in the electric chrome and nickel stripper tank, the parts are submerged in to the chemical stripper solution whilst all the old chrome and nickel plating is removed. The parts are checked and once all the existing plating is stripped off and we are down to the base material the parts are rinsed and unwired and placed back in to their allocated tray along with the job card ready to go in to the polishing workshop for the prep work to begin, the parts are linished with various grits going from course to fine and mop polished on the industrial polishing lathe and detailed polished using our advanced flexi arm grinding and polishing machine.

The parts are ready to go in to electroplating facility to begin rechroming, all the parts are now fully cleaned in the gas powered degreaser to remove all the grease and polishing compounds the parts are double copper plated followed by nickel and chrome plating. Once plated and rinsed the parts are hung and put through our conveyor oven to dry out all fully before they are quality checked, cleaned and polished ready for packing, now the Rechroming process is complete and the parts are ready for the customer to either pick up in person or for them to be shipped back to the customer.

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 quite difficult to plate.
