Alternatively, satin chrome plating, another fantastic option of modern looking which featured with dulled and matt surface appearance.
Satin chrome plating is widely used for items around the funitures to create a contemporary metal finish., such as door handles, light fittings, switches. This kind of electroplaing technique is produced by dipositing a thin layer of chrome onto a electroplated satin nickel coating layer which was relied on surface finishing such as sandblasting in the past but now using modern satin nickel chemistries for fast and reliable plating process.
