Plating Expositions in the USA


We use a variety of plating processes in our products :hard chrome, black chrome, anodizing, zinc plating, etc... We wish to attend an EXPO in U.S. that will have a large variety of plating/finishing companies (primarily job shops) exhibiting. Our goal is to keep current in the plating/coating industry. We do not do our own plating nor are we interested in starting but we want to ensure that are products have the best surfaces available for their applications. We are currently reviewing hard chrome and black chrome. I need a form of black chrome that is bright, hard, corrosion resistant and can be used on a large volume of SS parts.Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I am not aware of any EXPO that has a large group of job shop exibitors in the USA. SUR-FIN in the last of June has a few platers, but it will have nearly every vendor of plating chemicals and equipment there.

I am not pesonally aware of any bright black nickel or chrome, they are flat black. Black nickel is very thin and when scratched has a bright nickel appearance, which from what you said, does not sound like a good candidate.
