Satin Chrome Finish

About the Satin Chrome

It refers to a process of electroplating the surface of plastic products with pearl chromium plating. This process is often used to improve the appearance quality and protect the performance of product.

Satin Chromium Plating Process over Plastic

It is a process that deposits a layer of satin nickel on the surface of plastic product by the electrochemical method.

This usually consists of steps such as surface pretreatment, pre-plating treatment, electroplating and post-treatment.

First,the plastic surface is cleaned and activated through chemical to form a uniform coating on the plastic.

Then,apply a layer of conductive coating on the surface,and then immerse the product in a plating solution tank containing metal ions.

Under the action of current, the metal ions are reduced and deposited on the plastic surface to form a metal coating.

Finally, post-processing processes such as polishing, cleaning, drying, etc. are performed to obtain the desire surface gloss and texture.

Satin Chrome Vs Brushed Nickel

Choosing chrome versus brushed nickel for the look alone is entirely up to personal preference. If you're going for a shiny, super-clean look, chrome is the clear winner. If you don't want that super shine, you may prefer brushed nickel, which is a softer-looking metal that complements stainless steel appliances.

Polished Chrome Vs Satin Chrome

Satin chrome has a subtle, muted lustre that doesn't reflect light like the dazzling polished chrome finishes. Instead, satin chrome acts almost like a matte finish with a slightly darker complexion and very light, textured brushing.

What Is Satin Chrome

Satin chrome is created from a base metal of solid brass with a quality chrome plating applied to its surface. Satin chrome offers an understated alternative to polished chrome. Its blue traces and less reflective appearance make this finish popular with those who wish to select a matt finish.

Is Satin Chrome like Brushed Chrome

Satin chrome and brushed chrome are generally very similar, but brushed chrome always has the finish of brush lines across the product. Some satin chrome products have more of a matt appearance, but without the brush marks. Brushed chrome should look like a chrome finish, which has been brushed.
