Chromium, commonly referred to as Chrome, is a bluish metal commonly used for protection and for decorative purposes. There are two types of Chrome plating: Decorative Chrome and Hard Chrome. Decorative Chrome is done by putting a thin layer of Chrome over a base of either Copper and Nickel or Nickel only. Hard Chrome is just made up of Chrome only. It comes out a semi-bright blue, but can be ground or polished to a shiny blue finish.
