About Vinci Chrome
Vinci Chrome was established in 1985 by Charlie Vinci who has been in the chroming and polishing industry for more than 34 years. The workshop in Malaga uses state-of-the art equipment and procedures to achieve a high quality result.

Finishes Available
GOLD
The steps for gold plating are much the same as for brass. However in this case the gold is dissolved in a solution and exists as individual single
 
 
  ions of gold. When deposited onto the nickel substrate the gold deposit is virtually pure gold (24 carat). Because gold is such a stable material (it does not corrode) then the thickness can be reduced to less than 1 micron. The biggest problem with gold is that it is a relatively soft material and hence when there is any likelihood of wear a protective coating is applied. Components likely to be requiring this coating include things like door handles, tapwear or handrails.

CHROME
Since the 1930’s chrome plating has been synonymous with electroplating and even today by far the most common form of plating is still with chromium as the final decorative coal. Unlike gold or brass plating, chrome plating needs no further protection. The secret to chrome plating is that the chrome forms a very hard oxide coating which forms rapidly but then protects the surface from further oxidation and is also very resistant to wear. In fact there is a process called “Hard Chrome” plating and this is done specifically to improve the wear and life of components such as crankshafts. It is for these properties that chrome has remained so popular for so long.

There has been a revival of chrome plating with popularity of some of the more natural metallic finishes such as brushed or satin chromes.


BRUSHED CHROME
Unlike the standard bright chrome, brushed chrome is done by carrying out a satining polishing process after having first done a conventional nickel plating. Following the satining process the component is then replated with chrome as before and the result is the soft brushed appearance. This finish is quite a good match with the ”No 4 finish” of stainless steel.

About Company
 
Nothing matches chrome plating for restoring that sparkling 'brand new' look to all your metal surfaces. And that's not all it does! Apart from giving you a brilliant shine and lively lustre with a quick swipe of a polishing cloth, chrome plating also saves you money. We all know how quickly rust destroys metal surfaces and how quickly moving parts wear out.
