Specialist Plating

If you have any items which need to be brought back to their original high quality finish, we offer specialist plating.  For jewellery, ornaments, bespoke items or that special gift, this is the perfect solution to the effects of time and the elements.


Gold Plating

Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of a metal. At Doug Taylor Metal Finishing Co, we use a 22 Carat gold finish and our tank is 10 x 10 x 11 inches.


Silver Plating

Silver plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of silver onto the surface of a metal. Historically silver plating was used as a cheaper alternative to solid silver items such as cutlery and candle sticks. Our tank size is 16 x 18 x 20 inches.

Zinc Plating

This has either a bright and silver finish known as clear zinc passivate or has a yellowy gold finish known as coloured Zinc passivate. Both finishes prevent oxidation of metal by forming a barrier which sacrifices itself to the elements.

We are unable to offer any of these finishes on stainless steel items or pewter. Items have to be brass, mild steel or Aluminium based.
