Plating Services

Plating

Decorative Metal Coatings Company provides innovation in decorative and functional Plating Services.

Aluminum Plating

Billet aluminum plates the best. Cast aluminum by nature is very porous and has a great deal of pitting. Chrome plating will not cover pitting. If you have a cast aluminum part that is pitted and requires a show quality finish, let us know before processing your order. Using our process of acid copper plating and hand polishing we can remove most of the pitting, however, depending upon the casting of the part it may not be possible to remove all the pitting. You will be notified if your cast part will not be free of pits.

Aluminum Intakes Plating

Aluminum intakes are cast aluminum and will have some pitting. The pitting is in the part due to the casting, not the plating. If your intake is severely pitted we will notify you before plating. New intakes plate the best. Yes, we can plate your used intake, but extremely old intakes that have many miles tend to absorb oil and gas into the part which results in pitting. Installation of your intake will require that washers be used under the intake bolts.

Brass Plating

Brass plates very well. We also repair holes, cracks and dents on brass parts.

Bumper Plating

We provide a complete bumper restoration service. We straighten, repair dents/cracks and fill holes. (Help us out! Please mark or note any repairs you know are needed.) All bumpers are stripped down to the bare metal (sandblasted on the back), all repairs including straightening, realignment, dent and wave removal are then completed, the bumper is polished to a mirror finish and triple plated with copper, nickel, and chrome. We take great pride in our bumpers and provide you with the very best restoration service to finish your bumpers. So if you’re looking for a cheap job, go elsewhere.


Metal Plating

Due to the natural deterioration of this type of material it requires a great deal of work and time to restore. We can repair cracks and dents. In cases of severely deteriorated parts, filling pits, repairing cracks and dents can be achieved by hand filling and polishing. We do not grind out the pits. This is the most difficult metal to refinish and your parts are only handled by experienced personnel. All pieces go through an acid copper plate and buffing process. This takes a great deal of time and is very labor intensive but results in the best possible finish. Sometimes parts may be too deteriorated to restore to perfect condition. You will be notified in such a case. We reserve the right to refuse orders that will not be satisfactory to us.

Steel Plating

We plate all types of steel. The final finish on a steel part is related to the age, condition, and type of steel the part is made of. Old, rusted, pitted, deteriorated steel can be restored if there is enough metal left to work with. Sometimes the actual condition of the part cannot be known until the part is stripped. We can repair holes, cracks, and dents in steel parts. Cast iron parts are porous and extremely rough and may not polish out and plate to a mirror finish. You will be notified if your steel part is in a condition that will not result in a proper finish. New parts generally turn out the best.
