Most manufacturers thinking that by polishing something and
chroming it, minor surface defects will be covered up.
They're wrong. Look at most pieces of sheetmetal, even
castings. You'll see waviness, texture, even dings. To
get the best chrome, you have to start with a precision
surface. Our chrome weights start out with the same
exact precision surface as our Stainless weights. Then that
super-uniform surface is polished till it is like a mirror.
No dings, no waves. Awesome. This is quality.
We polish and plate in the USA in an EPA-regulated
shop, not overseas where they dump their waste wherever they
like. We use Nickel and Trivalent Chromium,
which is much more safe for the plating workers, and a bit more
environmentally friendly, than Hexavalent Chromium, which is the
old way, and is highly carcinogenic to the plating workers.
It is the best chrome, done in the best way.
It is the hardest finish you are likely to find. So it is
the most resistant to minor scratches.
