For external or wet area applications, aluminium & mild steel substrates to be specified/ ordered as “Duplex plating”.  EG “Duplex Chrome”, “Duplex Nashira”, “Duplex Arcturus”

To maintain the integrity of finish, parts should not be cut or drilled after plating as this leaves the base metal exposed to environmental degradation and we will not warrant our finish under these circumstances.

WHAT APPLICATIONS are NOT SUITABLE TO SPECIFY PLATING FOR:

Porous castings

Items over 70kg

Timber, mdf, glass and other non metal items

Horizontal surfaces including benchtops and work surfaces   (ask about how to achieve this)

Items which create air-pockets

Items which cannot be completely submerged into tanks

Items with rubber, plastic, glue, lock-tite, bog or other non-metal fillers,

Magnetic parts – these affect the current flows required for electroplating

Sinks (or similar items with deep recesses)
