Arlington Plating provided automotive chrome plating for the Dodge Challenger! We helped produce chrome plated fuel doors for Dodge, Fiat, Jeep and General Motors.
These chrome plated fuel doors look incredible and last a long time! The typical plating includes a layer of copper followed by successive layers of semi-bright, high sulfur, bright, and micro-porous nickel topped off with chromium.
Why chromium? Because when chrome tarnishes or oxidizes, the color does not change and the metal maintains its translucent appearance. Other metal oxidizes. Copper turns blue; Nickel turns yellow; Tin turns white.
