5/16” proof coil chain is a general purpose chain for all ordinary applications not requiring high strength characteristics. This chain is what you would buy to tow your car with. We use “plain face” this means it has no finish, because this is what we need for the best welding results.
Chrome is slang for Chromium. It's is a metal and one of the 91 naturally occurring chemical elements.
Things are not made of solid chrome. Rather, when you hear that something is chrome, or chromed, what is invariably really meant is that the object has been plated with a layer of chrome.
Chroming starts with a thorough cleaning of the part. Once the part is down to bare metal, it is polished. Next the part is plated with copper. This soft metal helps seal in the pores of the metal part and provides a smoother surface for the following materials to adhere to. After the copper, the part is plated with nickel and then plated with one or more layers of chrome.
Cleaning your Chrome Chain Cane: If your chrome cane is getting a little dull or has finger prints, use a chrome polish which is available in both liquid and paste/cream at any auto store. We recommend one with a light abrasive.
