Brushed Metal Finishes

February 6, 2016

As well as our usual polished metal finishing services we also offer a brushed metal finish. Brushed finishing is extremely popular on a wide range of items, especially household fittings such as showers and bath taps as well as jewellery items.

Though, nickel, yellow gold and rose gold are the most popular brushed finishing services we provide we can also apply it to copper, brass, silver and platinum.

The example below shows part of a new set of bathroom and shower fittings in polished chrome plate. The chrome was first electrochemically stripped off before the brushed gold finish could be applied.

Chrome Plating

September 25, 2011

The vast majority of our chrome plating work is basin taps, shower & bathroom fittings. These are often old & discontinued & it can be virtually impossible to find replacements to match the existing set. If you are lucky enough to locate replacements you’ll often find it can be more cost effective to have the old ones re-plated.

Chrome plating is the technique of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto an object. This decorative chrome layer provides outstanding corrosion resistance, as well as being easy to clean & care for. It is also a much cheaper final finish in comparison to precious metals such as gold & platinum.

Chrome is commonly applied to the following items:

  • Lighting, interior & exterior
  • Door handles & letterboxes
  • Bathroom & shower fittings
  • Toilet flush, chains & loo roll holders
  • Interior & exterior car parts including plastic badges
  • Motorcycle & scooter parts

An increasing amount of plastics are also chrome plated such as toilet push-button flushes, mobile phones & car parts. The chrome plating can be chemically stripped away revealing the underlying nickel which can then be electroplated in another finish such as gold or platinum.

All our work upon completion, whether it is in chrome or any other finish we offer, passes through our strict quality control checks before being returned to our customers. Rest assured our chrome plating really is the best chrome plating available. Items such as bathroom fittings, car & motorcycle parts in need of extensive restoration & refinishing could take anywhere from 7 – 14 days.

Please take a look at the photos showing our work in the gallery.
If you would like an item electroplating or you have any questions then please contact us.


Gold Plating Taps & Bathroom Fittings

July 18, 2008

As part of our daily work we are often gold plating bath taps, sink, shower & bathroom fittings. The majority of these are old & simply cannot be replaced in order to match the existing set. If you’re lucky enough to find replacements it’s often more cost effective to have the old ones re-plated.

Gold is the most common precious metal that we use to brush electroplate bathroom fittings including the gold plating of copper pipe work. We can electroplate your items with any precious metal including; 9-24 carat yellow gold plate, 18 carat white gold, rose gold, platinum, silver & chrome.

A bi-metal effect can be achieved by simply plating the tap top in yellow gold & the tap body in white gold. Any combination is possible it’s all down to your personal preference. Please see our gallery photos for examples.
Please use our contact form for a quotation.

The photo above shows a customer’s recently restored 20 year old bathroom fittings. The customer’s comments on the work we carried out for them is below.
