one of the services we offer at ATLAS PLATING is Colored Chrome . one of the applications is to add color on already chrome plated emblems ( plastic or metal ). the only condition is to have a brand new chrome ( or if the quality of the chrome is acceptable to you) we can create a variety of colors and there are colors that we can’t make. for example the is no White Chrome or Yellow Chrome.
Black Chrome: Black chrome comes in 3 major accents, most of the Black Chrome in the market has a Brownish accent , We also have Bluish and Greenish accents.
in most cases chrome wheels leak air due to corrosion in plated surface between tire and the base metal. corrosion causes blistering and creates gaps. this corrosion mostly comes from the water inside the air. Also FIX-A-FLAT is made of very corrosive material and can damage a whole rim in no time. At Atlas Plating we repair this corrosion affected area and in most cases there is no need of rechroming the wheel ( if the chromed face is acceptable ). there is no guaranty but we have more that 99% rate of success.
the cost for repairing the leaking due to corrosion is $40-$60 based on wheel size.
I have noticed some people use buffing wheels and compounds to clean a chrome surface. You need to keep in mind that chrome layer is only about 15 micron (more info on plating process) , A Hex Chrome tank which we often use for decorative plating adds about 7mic. per minute , so a 2 min of chrome plating probably gives us about 15mic.
buffing the chrome layer would wear off the chrome and you will end up with a Goldish surface which Nickel (more info on Polishing ). We see this on chrome plated exhaust pipes where people start using steel wool or Aluminum foils to clean the chrome.
We think the best way in cleaning your chrome is to wash is with soap and water and dry it with a towel or T-shirt. do not try to buff the small scratches off since you can’t and you only damaging your chrome.
