Nickel Chrome


Nickel Chrome: Alias – Decorative Chrome, Alias – Bright Chrome is achieved through the depositing of chrome over nickel plating. The nickel thickness is relatively heavy in comparison to the very thin coating of chrome.

When observing a decorative chromed object the majority of the brightness is produced by the nickel deposit. The nickel plating has a yellowish colored cast to it and would turn more so over time without the chrome deposit applied to its surface. The chrome itself has a very slight blue tint to it, protects the nickel from tarnish, reduces the susceptibility to scratching, and in part contributes to corrosion resistance.
