The term “bright chrome” is a little misleading, since the pure chrome does not have its own gloss, but the level of brightness rather depends on the undercoat – a nickel layer. The brightness transfer is gradually reduced as the thickness of the coating – ranging between 0.2 and 1 µm increases.

Application areas
Decorative goods, luminaries and lamp industry, furniture, functional application in machine and plant construction, wear-protection layers for pistons and tools.

Special features

Extremely hard, with undercoat – such as nickel – which are extremely resistant to corrosion, caution in environment containing chlorine. Excellent reflection and extremely resistant to temperature.


Chrome does not necessarily have to be glossy. Even matt surfaces have their appeal. One can often be surprised by their high aesthetic and modern effect.
The pearlescent surface which is very popular among our customers has a particularly interesting and decorative effect.


Nickel layers are famous for their extreme resistance to corrosion. Very glossy surfaces with excellent resistance to corrosion can be created, with the best diffusion barrier, magnetic, with excellent resistance against most diluted acids and alkaline solutions, good polishability.

Application areas
Electrical engineering, electronics, power plants, high-frequency technology, sealing, bearings, printed circuit boards, plugs, connectors, switch parts, decorative, cutlery, jewellery, medicine.

Special features
The best conductivity for electric current and heat, best reflection, very soft, excellent solderability, polishability with high-gloss effect.


Matt nickel offers an extreme resistance to corrosion.

Application areas
Machine construction, plant construction, furniture industry, decoration, metal fittings, electrical engineering.

Special features
Very glossy surfaces with excellent resistance to corrosion can be created, with the best diffusion barrier, magnetic, with excellent resistance against most diluted acids and alkaline solutions, good polishability.


Gold is most precious of all metals, with outstanding conductivity for electric current and heat.

Application areas
Electrical engineering, electronics, aviation, power plants, high-frequency technology, jewellery, cutlery, household items.

Special features
Excellent conductivity of electric current and heat, soft, excellent solderability, the surface is practically oxide-free.
