Products Water tap
With a series of surface coating steps permanent brightness and surface protection is achieved on the die casted blank zinc substrate of this water tap.

The die casted part is first electropolished, copper-plated and nickel-plated prior to chromium-plating.
Alternatively, gold-plating or alloys-plating (bronze), can be used to get enhanced values and better decoration effects.

Environ- mental notes Creation: A good use of the material is obtained using die casting since scraps can be reused.
Advanced surface treatment facilities are capable of either recycling or collecting their polluting waste products (heavy metals) so that no harmful emissions occur.
