Proper equipment for wheel and rim chroming?
October 24, 2008
Hi, My name is Derick, I have a mag rim repair business in South Africa, in a Town called Bloemfontein loosely translated (Flower fountain) There is a huge need for chrome rims and accessories for the motor industry. We did experiment with what they called a soft chroming process, which consisted with two chemical drums which did not work. The demand is growing, and I'm stuck, please advise me on how I can get the proper equipment and information on a electroplating process, please get back to me.
