Chrome Plating Grade ABS
I am looking for material specifications of Chrome Plating Grade ABS. I would also like to know about ABS 200 EP which is plating grade ABS from Bayer. Are there any other suppliers of plating grade ABS?
Kindly let me know.

Sorry, Mike, that's not possible economically. Chrome plating of ABS actually includes etching, palladium sensitizing, electroless nickel plating, copper plating, semi-bright nickel plating, bright nickel plating, and chrome plating as an absolute minimum. It's expensive to do, and would cost very substantial capital to install in house.
A substitute process may be good enough for you and might be either vacuum metallizing or chrome-look paints.
