Q. Basically we are in trading in UAE. We manufacture our product from china of bathroom fittings. That's why we need ideas for chrome plating because this china factory is fooling us on the name of chrome plating. We ask them for european quality plating look but they can't, and supply us low grade plated products. Let us know what we can do in this case for high grade plating on our products.

A. Hi again, Ab. I hope you enjoyed our intro which explained what is involved in high quality chrome plating. After that, there really are only two choices: either you ...

- buy only from firms which already deliver top quality goods, or
- you write plating specifications, establish a properly equipped and trained QA department, and enforce in your purchase orders that you will not pay for any product which is not in accord with those specifications or fails the specified QA tests.

Realistically you probably need to retain a plating consultant to write those specifications and develop that testing plan, but a very good beginning would be to obtain a copy of the booklet "Quality Metal Finishing Guide for Copper Nickel Chromium Coatings" from, which includes such topics as 'Specifying the Finish' and 'Testing the Finish'.
