To ensure an exceptional quality of chrome finishing, which does not need to fear installation in a state 1 vehicle, the chrome elements are restored as follows:
- 1. Original detail
Investigation of all elements. Preparation of detailed photographic documentation. Work time estimate.
Removing of old galvanic coating, corrosion traces and other defects. To remove the old galvanic coating we use electrochemical and chemical methods.
3. Detail’s repair
Reconstruction of original form by metal work experts.
Filing of each single element with a special polishing machine. All stages of polishing are done manually.
5. Copper planting
Using a copper as a corrosion protection. Restoration through the corrosion damaged material.
Polishing of every detail to get mirror brilliancy thanks to the sections, that need an additional treatment, become visible. After a seeable inspection an element is coated with nickel or copper and then is polished again. This process repeats manually until the perfect result will be reached.
7. Nickel coating
A nickel coating furthers durable corrosion protection.
Coating Chrome gives hardness, wear capability of detail. Chrome-plated parts are not only easy to clean, but also add perfect luster.
9. Quality control
After the final polishing and last clean each item is quality controlled to ensure compliance with the requirements of the highest quality.
