Chrome titanium coating house ornaments




Hello I have just recently started my own business in home furnitures, and I would like to do some chrome coating on some of the metal products and some on plastic ornaments. I have contacted a few companies but they only deal with industrial chrome \titanium plating. does anyone know how I can add this option to my business?
all help and advise is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Titanium has nothing to do with it, Sebastian; I don't know where you heard that. Rather, decorative plating of this type is actually nickel plating followed by chrome plating. Please see our Chrome Plating Tutorial as your first step. Good luck.

Over metal, chrome has been plated for years with an under coat of bright nickel and is a low tech issue. Titanium is often improperly named for titanium nitride, a gold color coating applied to drill bits and other tool in a vacuum chamber. Plastic substrates make a big difference. Plating and vaccum processes are either far more complicated or impossible.
