DARK CHROME PLATING
Often referred to as black chrome plating, dark chrome plating is a popular new decorative chrome plating option. Dark chrome plated finishes range from a light smoky chrome appearance to a deep nearly black chrome plated appearance.
We apply dark chrome plating over bright and satin nickel providing mirror bright to dull satin dark chrome finishes.
Trivalent Black/Dark Chrome Plating Process
At Master Finish Company, we offer dark chrome plating using a trivalent chromium plating process that is hexavalent-chromium-free, delivering a beautiful finish to enhance the value of your brass, steel, stainless or zinc die cast components. With our ability to modify the dark chrome and satin nickel plating chemistries, we are able to meet most OEM automotive color codes or we can develop a unique finish appearance to meet your requirements.
Trivalent chrome plating does a better job of depositing metal in recessed areas and is less prone to plating excessively thick deposits in high current density areas. Black chrome plating offers a conductive, corrosion resistant, ultra-violet light resistant finish with smooth, rich dark tints for your chrome plated components.
