Silver Plating is ideal for worn antiques or decorative household items.

Silver Plating on an item that has cost little to buy can make the item look valuable and sell for a lot more. Plating also restores items to there former glory. With Silver Plating we would need to see the item to be able to give an accurate quotation. The Silver Plating solution we use is bright and hard wearing.

Chrome Plating gives a mirror like finish and is used on many items. All bathroom accessories are mainly chrome plated and tend to lose the chrome at some point. These items as with all chrome items can be stripped of the original chrome and plated in gold or silver to give that personal preference.

Customers often call to have Chrome items Nickel Plated. All Chrome Plated items have been plated with Nickel prior to Chrome. We can just remove the Chrome finish leaving the mirror finished Nickel.

“We are a professional electroplating company that has been operating for over 16 years and have built up a good reputation with many returning customers from all over the world.”

I sent Lee my wedding ring to be plated. The service I got was exemplary. When I opened the parcel with my ring I was so impressed. The quality of the workmanship was excellent, the turnaround speed was amazing and the comms from Lee was superb. I have no reservations in recommending Lee at the Gold Plating Company to anyone who wants to get something plated. This was an excellent experience for me from start to finish.

Gold Plating – Silver Plating – Nickel Plating – Platinum Plating exclusively brought to you by The Gold Plating Company Limited

Most car emblems are Chrome Plated and can have the Chrome removed, then Gold Plated in different shades or Silver Plated. The process we use is known as Brush Plating or Selective Plating. Brush Plating because it is applied in a brush like manner and Selective Plating because you can be selective on the item being plated. This is a method of electroplating, where, concentrated plating solutions are used on the selected area without the need for using large tanks. We also offer tank plating for small items. The choice of solution is applied to the article to be plated, using an absorbent material wrapped around an electrode. The material is then saturated in the chosen plating solution, Gold, Silver, Platinum or Nickel and applied to the item using an electrical current. This process is similar to the dipping method but applied differently. This process also uses more concentrated chemicals and gives a faster build up of metal. GoldPlating, SilverPlating & NickelPlating are all electroplated in this way apart from some larger items that need to be electroplated using a tank.
