plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
Looking for chrome plating equipment on plastic to start a fam. business
As stated above, I want to start a new business with my Dad... We are interested in opening a chrome shop to attend aftermarket parts in Puebla and some southeast Mexico. (I want to know what the best option would be)
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi, Cristobal. Surgery is not primarily about the brand or shape of scalpel you use, and chrome plating on plastic is not really primarily about the plating tank and rectifier you buy. We hope you do go into the chrome plating business, and encourage you to do so, but a huge amount of study is required before you buy anything. Please see our "FAQ on Chrome Plating" for a quick introduction, then try to find a copy of the American Society for Electroplated Plastics book "Standards and Guidelines for Electroplated Plastics". Best of luck.
