Rack ElectroplatingAt Signal Plating, Inc. nickel-chrome rack electroplating services add a decorative and protective finish to your ferrous metal and brass parts. Our large-scale rack plating line is equipped to process parts measuring up to 9.5 feet long, 4 feet high, and 30 inches wide, making it suitable for many applications, from machined parts and stampings to decorative fixtures and furnishings.

We electroplate nickel only or nickel-chrome combinations, in multiple .0003 to .001 inch thick layers, to create many popular and durable finishes. Examples include a bright nickel finish – great for decoration and corrosion protection; a satin nickel finish – offering the look of stainless steel; as well as satin brass and architectural bronze finishes – both excellent for adding an elegant look to a decorative fixture or piece of furniture. Our chrome baths are formulated from EPA-friendly trivalent chromium, and we utilize thickness testers and visual inspections to ensure that each part has a superior quality, long lasting finish. We are also able to perform the necessary polishing and buffing prep work on most jobs.

Equally capable of handling single pieces, small quantities, and large scale production runs with short lead times and fast turnarounds, our nickel-chrome plating services have many applications for products targeting the hospitality, consumer, retail, and office furnishing industries. Contact us today to learn how Signal Plating can become the most reliable source for all your part finishing needs.
