TECHNICAL INFORMATION / SUPERCHROME TECHNIQUE
The Superchrome Process consists of a triplex nickel plating to a specified thickness. This gives better appearance but importantly, the three very different layers of nickel combine to provide extreme corrosion resistance of the wheels.
Scientific testing has shown that the life of the wheel or rim doubles.The Superchromed product will withstand harsh conditions including humid and salty environments.
Astor Metal Finishes have carried out extensive testing of Wheel products. In addition to in-service testing, corrosion testing is done using an accelerated salt spray test (CASS). This stimulates road conditions in Detroit USA with the harsh conditions experienced there – including salt and snow on the roads. In all these tests the triplex nickel process has given excellent results. Astor also conducts adhesion and thickness testing on a routine basis as part of quality control procedures.
