What are the advantages of Chrome?

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.
