Test to indicate ready to chrome plate




My wife refinishes golf clubs. Some chrome plated clubs must be re-plated. Before plating, a test to provide a ready to plate status is needed.

Most chrome plated clubs have a carbon steel base metal. Occasionally stainless steel is the base metal.

Our understanding of a properly plated club indicates the base metal should have a copper base plate. This is covered with a nickel plate. Finally a thin chrome plate is applied. Before the new chrome finish can be established, the old chrome must be removed.

How can one establish all of the chrome is removed?

Is this a sufficient test to insure the club is prepared for the new chrome plate?

If you are taking parts to a plating shop that can't tell what is on them or what they are made out of , find another plater.
You should be able to take these parts to any reputable custom chrome plater and get the answer to your questions.
