Chromefix have perfected the prep and polishing process of all your invaluable parts, good prep is key to Chrome Restoration.
When we start the Chrome Restoration process we begin by disassembling all the parts if they have not been taken apart already, this is something we ask the customer to do before sending or bringing their parts in to us. After this any paints, sealants and oils are removed, now the parts are ready to be copper wired and hung in the electronic chrome stripping chemical tank to remove the original plating, the parts are left in the tank for a period of time until the original chrome plating is totally stripped off and we are down to the base metal.
We have restored 1000's of parts over the years. Restoring parts is a challenge, a challenge we enjoy from start to finish.
Once we are satisfied that the original chrome plating is all removed we assess the condition of the parts to see if the metal underneath is thick enough and does not have too much rust, to see if there is any repairs required, if this has not already been discussed with the customer then we get on the phone to the customer to discuss the parts true condition and the repairs it requires, repairs usually mean welding and brass brazing 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 if its possible to source the same part in better condition. If it is not possible to source the part because its one of those irreplaceable type of parts then we explore other options, we speak with a local engineering firm to discuss if we can part build a section of the part and combined with welding, brass brazing and linish polishing in to shape. 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, after its cleaned the part is hung on copper wire and electroplated.
Please see our Process Gallery for all the steps your parts go through.
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.
"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."
