You should think nickel plating for key blanks instead of chromium. You will need a lot of equipment and it is a big investment to be able to plate nickel on brass with the required excellent adhesion.

Why don't you send 50 kilos of key blanks to a jobshop plating near you for 0.0002 inches of bright nickel plating, and see how they work out?

I suggest you use a barrel technology, for a nickel free white bronze.
