can be removed from jobs that required refurbishment by an electro-chemical process.
This has many advantages over mechanical removal.
As the underlying metal is
not effected by the process, new chrome deposits may be applied. This has great
benifits for rollers and cylinders that are engraved or embossed, in that the
engraving is not damaged.
- May be more cost effective
- In many cases quicker
- Does not damage the
