Chrome plating is hardly a matter of dipping an article into a tank, it is a long involved process that often starts with tedious polishing and buffing, then cleaning and acid dipping, zincating, and copper plating.
Decorative chrome plating is sometimes called nickel-chrome plating because it always involves electroplating nickel onto the object before plating the chrome (it sometimes involves electroplating copper on the object before the nickel, too).
Chrome plating is hardly a matter of dipping an article into a tank, it is a long involved process that often starts with tedious polishing and buffing, then cleaning and acid dipping, zincating (if the part is aluminum), and copper plating.

 finishing.com FAQs: Chrome Plating.
Chrome is slang for Chromium, one of the 91 naturally occurring chemical elements.
Hard chromium plating is chrome plating that has been applied as a fairly heavy coating (usually measured in thousandths of an inch) for wear resistance, lubricity, oil retention, and other 'wear' purposes.
There are no laws that define what triple chrome plating actually means, so salespeople will be prone to call their service "triple chrome plating" if there are a total of 3 layers of any kind of plating, or "quadruple chrome plating" if there are 4.

 Subject Top Page: What Is Chrome Plating?
Chrome plating is the process by which an electrical charge is applied to a plating bath containing an electrolytic salt (chromium anhydride) solution.
Chrome plating operations are categorized based upon the thickness of the chromium metal layer applied.
Hard chrome plating is a process in which a thicker layer of chromium metal is deposited directly on metal substrates such as engine parts, industrial machinery, and tools to provide greater protection against corrosion and wear.

 Chrome Plating
I then plated, with agitation, for five hours and wound up with an hour-glass shaped piston, due to a 13 mill chrome deposit measured at mid-skirt level and 21 mils on the edges (formed by the bottom of the skirt and the piston crown).
This process is particularly useful when the chroming operation has been interrupted to measure the thickness deposited and the workpiece must be returned to the plating bath for the continued build-up of a thicker plate.
Chrome deposit would be thickest on the cheeks and thin nest on the outer rim, due to the position of the anodes relative to the cathode workpiece.

 Chrome Plating Bath Recovery by Vacuum Evaporation
Chrome plating bath recovery and reuse is practical and economical, and an environmentally sound alternative to traditional methods of waste treatment and sludge generation and disposal.
Because of the electrical inefficiency of chrome plating solutions, 75-90% of the chromic acid purchased for electroplating is actually lost through drag-out and subsequent waste treatment.
Chrome baths being successfully recovered are the conventional sulfate, proprietary fluoride, tri-chrome, hard chrome, and bright-dip baths.

The impact of the potential for thinner chrome plating on operating fuel has been determined not to create a substantial safety hazard, and, therefore, is not reportable pursuant to the provisions of 10CFR21.
However, only a small fraction of the specified minimum chrome plating is actually required for the sleeve to meet its functional requirement of protecting the CEA guide tube from wear.
Therefore, the chrome plating thickness in previously delivered fuel is adequate for the fuel to continue to meet the scrammability and coolability requirements of the General Design Criteria; which was the basis for NRC acceptance of the original sleeve design in Reference 2.

 poeton plating
Following a three-year project to develop a low effluent hard chrome plating plant in partnership with the Environmental Technology Best Practice Programme, Poeton Industries (www.poeton.co.uk) has dramatically improved the quality of the hard chrome plating it produces by introducing a more efficient and environmentally friendly high-pressure filtration system into its processing plant.
Explaining the significance of the new process, Colin John says that visually all chrome looks the same, so the efficiency of the new Apticote 100 process allows customers with critical applications to specify hard chrome plating with confidence.
He says, "adding that faster plating with improved pitting reductions at less cost makes the new Apticote 100 Chrome a double winner".

After the lenticular engraving, a post chrome thin-flash plating is applied on top of the copper engraved plating, only to help protect the soft copper finish underneath.
The addition of chrome plating on top of the copper engraved lenticule changes the desired (knife like sharp peaks) of the lenticule profile to a more rounded undesired profile.
The chrome plating effectively can change the intended optical lens design negatively, which can create possible quality problems once printed upon, or when viewed as a computer or TV screen.
