Nimac M-satin star

NiMac M-Satin StarThe NiMac M-Satin Star nickel process produces a uniform and smooth, medium to heavy satin finish with a gloss level of 10 or less* when measured to the relative Q-Gloss standard . To achieve the high corrosion resistance required to meet exterior automotive specifications, NiMac M-Satin Star can be used in conjunction with semi-bright, high sulfur and microporous nickel systems.

trimac iii

The world's leading trivalent chromium plating process.

TriMacIII is the “industry standard” for trivalent chromium plating. TriMacIII contains zero carcinogenic hexavalent chromium, It is able to achieve a deposit thickness in excess of 0.3 microns (12 microinches), while providing a deposit that is virtually indistinguishable from hexavalent chromium deposits. The system is easy and economical to operate. TriMacIII is automotive-approved for both interior and exterior applications.

TriMac III meets automotive chromium specifications for interior and exterior applications. When measured to the Q-Color standard, it compares as follows to traditional bright chromium plate:trivalent chrome plating
