    Default Hard Chrome: where's the best chrome plating facility in your town?

    The Purpose of this thread is to determine the best facilities in our town for hard chrome plating.

    Hard Chrome: where's the best chrome plating facility in your town? - iStock Motorcycle Sunset 680x441



    Its Shiny, its smooth, it catches our attention,
    Its high maintenance which I dont need to mention.

    Chrome is a woman, attracts as a youngster,
    But eventually weakens and do looses its luster.

    When this honeymoon phase is finally over,
    you.... my friend are screwed...... suicidal on a tower

    You can either part ways and find a new one,
    or like me get emotionally attached to the old one,
    and hope a miracle will one day give her luster a re-run

    Re-chrome is the claim of facilities in my town,
    Assuring shiny to what has went brown.

    Schemers played with my emotion,
    Exploited my eagerness to spark up my relation.

    I was promised a long lasting attraction, they took my dollar,
    Beginning was smooth then my friend came the horror.

    The attraction faded away soon,
    Left me stranded to remorse and moan.

    I became weak and cheated a bit here and there,
    I soon came to my senses and now I despair.

    She is my sweetheart and always loyal,
    I want back her glory and treat her like a royal.

    You must have walked the walk and know what I mean,
    I'am a sinner, am a man its in my gene.

    I merely want to loose her scars
    Make her shine like the stars.

    I have in my pocket a few dime,
    I want to give her back her shine.

    My plea to you is for directions,
    which way to best chrome operations.

    I need a place where the chrome is hard
    I want to go the whole nine yards.

    I've had a few objects hard chromed but it generally isn't that big of a deal nor it is super expensive. it is usually expensive than most paint jobs because a lot of man hours are spent on preparing the surface and cleaning it for electroplating. similarly, the solutions are also hazardous and disposing them off also entails a financial cost.

    there are other processes as well which are better suited for different applications. for example electroless nickel plating and titanium nitriding are way more harder than any chrome plating you can get and the best part is that both of these are available at facilities in Lahore.

    Regards.
    Nice share.

    I believe titanium Nitride is brass kind of finish we see on front forks on new sports bikes. They must be expensive.

    crankshafts are also nitrided to make them develop a very very tough skin in order to remachine to dead zero standard spec. Mostly the choice when your engines crankshaft is no longer available as repair part.

    What did you get hard chromed? How much did it cost you?
    The thing with roadside kind of chrome facilities is that they do not spend time on degreasing and preparing the surface for chrome. Thats the reason i think they do not last long.

    There is also a coating called DLC coating..... its the hardest coating in existence as they claim..... DLC stands for Diamond Like Carbon. Its used to coat valves,etc and even line cylinders rather than inserting a sleeve.

    Titanium nitriding gives a shiny gold like appearance and is a pretty hard surface finish. similarly, electroless nickle looks kinda like chrome but gives a slightly different tint/shade.

    I guess you are right, there are plenty of new age coating out there but I am afraid most of them are not available here in Pakistan. electroless nickle and TiNi is however available here.

    Regards.

    I request @12gauge to please give complete detail of the facility at Lahore.

    This thread should be more active.

    At some stage I was so disappointed regarding chrome work etc, decided to make my own facility at home for my small projects.

    But ah my business........needs me.
