On top of semi-glossy nickel plating (which improves corrosion resistance) and glossy nickel plating (which adds a shiny appearance), a layer of special nickel plating is applied to achieve high corrosion resistance and silver appearance.

Improved corrosion resistance through sacrificial dissolution
Bright nickel is less corrosion resistant
than semi-bright nickel due to the effects of additives.
Therefore, the bright nickel plating layer guarantees corrosion resistance through sacrificial dissolution, preventing corrosion of the semi-bright nickel plating and retarding the corrosion of material.
Further improved corrosion resistance with microporous plating
After applying nickel plating containing non-conductive fine particles over the glossy nickel plating, adding a layer of chrome plating creates a film with a large number of pores.
This plating, called microporous plating, can disperse the corrosion current between the layers of nickel plating, which can improve corrosion resistance.
Because it uses a glossy nickel base, you can get a beautiful silver-white chrome look while maintaining its luster.
