A. It is a good rule of thumb to start with whatever chemicals/process that your equipment MFG sells for their equipment. After you have got the process down pat, then start looking for alternative sources. PS, brush chrome is a very very thin cap layer.James Watts

A. For tank plating, as you surely know, there is hexavalent and trivalent chrome. For brush plating, only trivalent has been thoroughly developed. It can be plated to some 0.001" or perhaps even more though its color resembles more the nickel. To my knowledge what Jim said is correct hexa chrome can only be applied in very thin caps before the brush, wrapping and anode reactions start decomposing and plating stops. Final result is always disappointing, specially if you want to match existing chrome to its blueish cast.Guillermo Marrufo
