Satin Nickel and Chrome

Bronson Plating excels at applying satin chrome and satin nickel electroplating for use in a wide range of applications. These chrome plating and nickel plating options offer a soft or low sheen, durable finish, corrosion protection, and wear resistance.

Applications include medical chrome plating of hospital equipment and furnishings, display racks for retail store fixtures, office furniture, decorative chrome plating for household items such as lighting and plumbing fixtures, and automotive chrome plating of automotive interior components.

With all our plating jobs, Bronson Plating eliminates new product launch delays that are due to plated parts not meeting spec or appearance requirements. We do this by requesting detailed plating requirements up-front and performing full contract review upon initial part receipt – we then verify tooling and setup assumptions prior to full production.
We use pre-finishing or polishing procedures when preparing components for satin plating. Various techniques employed by Bronson Plating for stainless steel plating or plating of other items include wire brushing, shot peening, and belt polishing with various grits.

Bronson Plating offers finishes in both trivalent and hexavalent chrome using environmentally responsible processes.

We are a Michigan chrome plating business that aims to serve the Midwest and beyond as a leader of chrome plating suppliers.
