Global automotive chromium market: Increasing demand for decorative chrome plating
Decorative chrome plating protects automotive components from corrosion, scratch, and wear and tear. It provides brightness and enhances their appearance. Hexavalent and trivalent chromium are popularly used for decorative chromium plating of automotive components. Decorative chrome plating is mainly applied to exterior automotive components or vehicle parts such as door handles.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals, “Decorative chrome plating is thinner than functional chrome plating with the latter being used for protection from external conditions than appearance. The decorative chrome plating technology yields favorable results when applied over a layer of nickel or copper. It is extensively used in automotive applications as it imparts a unique bluish-white luster to decorative parts.”
