Satin chrome finish on brass

Selim Satin finish on either chrome or brass can be accomplished with mass finishing systems using dry organic materials treated with pumice. Normally it is sold premixed with a type of glue or binder to hold mix together. Depending on equipment and finish, this process can take a couple of hours to a couple of days.

For a brushed satin finish on a door handle the part needs to be pre-polished using either a Scotch Brite wheel, or a leewheel (using a greaseless polishing compound) or bead blasting. The part is then dull nickel plated, occasionally after dull nickel plating Scotch Brite is used to achieve a grain, then chrome plated after.

For Satin finish you need a Satin nickel on the brass prior to the chrome layer. The big supply houses have this product.
