Need chrome dipping (not electroplating) equipment
November 17, 2008
looking for a supplier of chrome dipping equipment not the plating type, I live in Canada so a Canadian distributor would be nice but I also purchase a lot of my antique auto parts from the States, just cost us more with the exchange n duty, any help would be greatly appreciated, not finding much on the net.Kevin Williston

Sorry, this RFQ is outdated, but technical replies are welcome. No public brand/source suggestions please ( huh? why?)

Hi, Kevin. Sorry, but there is no such thing. Chrome is applied solely by electroplating. You can, however, apply shiny, spray-on "chrome-look" paint. Please see our "Introduction to Chrome Plating".
