Universal Metal Plating in Azusa, California

Universal Metal Plating specializes in chrome plating and metal finishing in Azusa, California, and the surrounding counties.

Chrome Plating

Chrome plating is a finishing treatment utilizing the electrolytic deposition of chromium. The most common form of chrome plating is the thin, decorative bright chrome, which is typically a 10-µm layer over an underlying polished nickel plate. It imparts a highly reflective finish to items such as metal furniture frames and automotive trims.

Thicker deposits, up to 1,000 µm, are called hard chrome, and are used in industrial equipment to reduce friction, and restore the dimensions of equipment that have experienced wear.

Triple Plating

Triple plating covers up small imperfections such as pits or minor scratches. Copper is placed before the nickel and chrome. The nickel is given a vibrant shine and a longer-lasting life.

The chrome layer is actually quite thin while both the copper and nickel layers are much thicker. The copper is used to seal off the base metal, and the nickel is used to obtain both leveling and corrosion resistance.
