Chromium Plating

Galvanizing could be defined as treatments aimed to give at metal items a coating formed by molecules of other metals. Through a process of immersion in an electrolytic solution, it works according to the principle of anode/cathode migration. Through the electric current flow the molecules bind to the base metal.

This technique allows to cover a base metal with a thin layer of more precious or more noble metal (or passivable). This process protects metal structures from corrosion, but also may have a decorative purpose.

In particular, chromium plating is the coating of a metal with a layer of chromium. The purpose is both to prevent rusting and increase the corrosion resistance.
