Chrome Strip

Chrome 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.

Nickel Strip

For thin deposits of electrolytic nickel, a chemical process can be used to remove the coating. It is an expensive and slow process and is only recommended for jobs that are of irregular shape that are not possible to machine.

The normal method of removing nickel is by turning or grinding. (this does necessitate some underlying metal to be removed)
