Heatbath » Decorative Plating


Decorative Hexavalent Chrome Plating is used for tarnish resistance, scratch and wear resistance, and for its high reflectivity. Heatbath® proprietary Chrome Catalysts increase plating speeds and produce harder deposits with better coverage. The resultant plated surfaces are a pleasing blue-white color with less iridescence and staining. Other advantages of our Chrome Brightener Systems include a higher tolerance to impurities, less sensitivity to current interruptions and ease of plating on passive surfaces.
