    Re: triple chrome vs. nickel/chrome vs. copy chrome

    As Mike states triple chrome is 3 steps some times 4. This same look can be achieved with copy chrome by simply plating copper aprox 30 minn polish and degrees then copy chrome aprox 15 minn then polish and degrees then copper aprox 15 minn polish degrees then copy chrome 1 to 1.5 hours at 1 amp per 32 sq inches this will achieve the same look as triple chrome.

    Yes, that's right. Triple chrome and nickel/chrome are the same except Triple chrome has the copper as well.

    Triple chrome is three layers of plating, sometimes 4 (copper/nickel and chrome) This results in an overall better finish.

    Nickel/Chrome is two layers of plating, and should only be applied on brand new, smooth parts.

    Copy Chrome is one layer. It looks like chrome but is actually a modified nickel plate.

    In the nickel/chrome combo you are paying for an extra set of chemicals and an authentic chrome finish.

    started a topic triple chrome vs. nickel/chrome vs. copy chrome

    triple chrome vs. nickel/chrome vs. copy chrome

    I know the basic differences in these 3 however a couple questions.

    nickel/chrome combo vs. copy chrome

    Copy chrome says it is nickel based and leaves a chrome finish so what is the difference? What makes the nickel/chrome better than the copy chrome (I am assuming the nickel/chrome is better since it costs more)? Are the chemicals really totally different between these 2 processes? I like the fact the copy chrome is not hazmat also. Thanks
