Chrome Plating on Zinc Die Casting

ADD THE FINISHING TOUCH

Zinc castings readily accept chrome plating.  We also add several layers to achieve the best possible results. As a result MDL is able to achieve a perfectly smooth, dense outer surface that benefits the plating process.

OUR CHROME PLATING PROCESS

STEP 1 - CLEANING

Cleaning is an essential first step, removing any impurities to ensure a smooth and even finish. It removes grease from the die casting and any impurities that may have been picked up during the casting process.

STEP 2 - PRE-TREATMENT

Pre-treatment is undertaken to prevent any highly acidic or alkaline solutions from dissolving or degrading the zinc. A coat of copper flash is added between the zinc surface and the chrome plating to ensure compatibility between the two surfaces.

STEP 3 - PLATING

Following cleaning and pre-treatment, your product will pass through a series of layer adding processes. Layers are added to increase electrical conductivity and help with corrosion resistance. The final layer of chrome is added for further corrosion resistance and to achieve the perfect aesthetic touch.

STEP 4 - POLISH

MDL die castings are carefully hand polished to achieve the finishing touch and a flawless mirror like surface.

MDL can provide finishes for any given application.

 No matter your application, we’d love to help you with your die casting and finishing needs. Contact us for more information.
