Masking for chrome


I am looking for a masking application for using in a chrome solution. I like to use lacquer for masking before I put the part in the chrome solution.

In the USA, there are several companies that make the lacquer you refer to, and numerous firms that sell it or repack and sell. You should have several choices in Europe. It probably will take one more coat than they reccomend for heavy build ups.

Lacquer is the most time consuming waste of a chrome platers time . There are many other ways of protecting surfaces . I stopped using lacquer years ago , and found it much faster to develop new methods .
