Looking for 5" chrome plated steel round tubing 10 - 12 ft in length





June 1, 2010

RFQ: Don with a contracting company located in Virginia Beach, Va. we are currently constructing in our shop a project for a private customer. we need 5" steel tubing or pipe, any thickness chrome only on the outside, would prefer as light weight as possible, would prefer 10-12 ft lengths, off the shelf would like to be able to purchase 1 or 100 as needed. Can any one help me locate?

Sorry, this RFQ is outdated, but technical replies are welcome.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

Ed. note: We've published your RFQ, Don, but I seriously doubt that you will find chrome plated tubing of this size "on the shelf" anywhere. The steel tubing should be on the shelf at a steel warehouse, but you would need to get a chrome plating shop to plate it for you. You're probably looking for nickel-chrome plating. Our FAQ, "Introduction to Chrome Plating" may help. Good luck.
