The final finish that is acquired on the part that is being polished will be dependent on a variety of factors.
A lot of the brightness and levelling (surface smoothness) is obtained by our use of a high quality bright nickel electroplating process. However, this can only be achieved if the substrate (base material) is prepared to a standard suitable for decorative finishing.
Decorative finishing will essentially involve polishing the base material to a flaw free and smooth surface so as to optimise the finish that is acquired using our high brightness levelling nickel.
There are some materials that can be too rough or heavily corrode to allow us to acquire a suitable surface for obtaining the finish you desire.
The process of linishing involve rotating abrasive belts in various grades from coarse too especially fine and will be determined by the surface condition so as to acquire a smooth finish on a component.
Polishing will utilise a large diameter mops crafted of cloth or sisal rotating as a speed on a lathe like a machine to produce a bright reflective surface. Aiding the process will be the suitable polishing compounds coating the mops.
