Electroplating

Electroplating – It is what we do.

After being a customer of electroplating services ourselves for many years we decided to build our own electroplating plant to ensure good consistent quality every time. We began plating our own range of high end bathroom accessories. Word spread of our quality chrome plating in Adelaide and today Delway electroplates a vast range of items for many different customers.

Triple plated chrome

This is the method we use. Our electroplating is made up of copper first, then nickel and finally chrome. Our copper based electroplating adds a layer of protection between the final layer and the item . The copper also acts as a leveller, filling small scratches and pitting. Some parts require buffing and additional layers of copper for the best results ensuring a smooth final chrome finish. After the copper is applied we add bright nickel plating followed by the final finish of chrome.

“Just dip it”

Electroplating is a multi stage process and not just a simple matter of dipping something into a tank and taking it out. At Delway we take no short cuts. The final result we achieve is due to the preparation work we do before the final finishing stage. The process involves costly chemicals, is labour intensive, highly regulated and very particular. We regularly hosts groups for tours to see the process in action. Interested in learning more? Just ask, we will be happy to have you as our guest.
