Varying plating processes are undertaken to suit your particular application and aesthetic. Provide as much detail as possible in order to attain an accurate quote and the appropriate plating. If for exterior grade, we recommend to use stainless base metal for the majority of applications and profiles. For automotive components Astor always plate with either Duplex Nickel (two coat of different types of nickel) and for poorer metals we can offer copper, nickel then chrome plating.
Plating is consistently done to AS/NZ 1192 – 2004. For further information on Surface Finishing Industry Standards, visit SAI Global, for copies of the relevant Australian Standards.
It is essential for orders and quote requests to nominate purpose and also if for exterior or wet area applications.
