Chrome Plating Using Barrel?


Is it possible to use barrel in a bright chrome plating? If possible, how does the process works and is there a difference in the chemical? I thank you in advance for your kind reply.

If you go to the top of the page and type in "barrel chrome", search engine you will see links to three letters which address this topic, Mr. Leong.

The short answer is that it is not impossible, but is orders of magnitude harder than barrel plating of other finishes, and an extremely high reject ratio seems unavoidable. Ted Mooney, Teds signature
