We generally use silver plating for the antique restoration of…
Our daily work often involves the gold plating of bathroom taps, sink wastes, plugs, showers & associated parts. The vast majority of these are simply too old and worn making them extremely difficult to replace in order to match up to the existing fittings. If you’re lucky enough to source good gold plated replacements you’ll find that it’s often more cost effective having the old ones refurbished and gold plated again.
Gold plating does tend to be the most common precious metal that we use to electroplate bathroom taps and fittings. The gold plating of copper pipe is also a great finishing touch for the visible areas of your plumbing.
If you cannot locate gold plated taps in the style you require and are only able to locate new chrome plated taps, toilet flushes, shower and bathroom parts we can chemically strip the chrome back to the underlying nickel and replate in gold for you. We offer gold plating on all chrome plated plastics including toilet flushes and end caps.
Don’t fancy gold plating? You do not have to have your items gold plated. We can electroplate them with any of the precious metals we offer including; 9-24 carat yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, green gold, platinum, palladium and silver. Of course, your old worn taps, bathroom and shower parts can also be chrome plated.
A bi-metal effect can also be achieved should you want the tap top in gold plate & the tap body in white gold or simply leaving in chrome. Any combination is possible; it’s all down to your personal preference.
We offer a fast turnaround on all new chrome plated items that require precious metal electroplating. Please contact us if you have any questions or require a quotation.
