Chrome Stools Put You In The Driver’s Seat
You jockey for position, but cannot seem to overtake the other vehicle or get that coveted inside track. Then suddenly, your car surges forward, about a car-length ahead of your nemesis. The other vehicle returns the favor by streaming past your automobile. This back-and-forth position changing continues until the final stretch. Neck-and-neck, both cars dart along the track, as if following a script, towards the finish line. Both you and the other vehicle speed underneath the checkered flag, in a down-to-the-wire photo finish. Suddenly, the noise of the crowd dies out, and you slowly open your eyes. Instead of being seated in a Formula One, you find yourself in one of the room’s comfortable chrome stools.
Chrome, Chromium, and Chromite
Chrome can be used on numerous automobile parts. We have seen chrome before, but what exactly is it? Chrome is a thin sheet of chromium that is placed on metal that could corrode. It helps to prevent stains and makes the surface brighter. Chrome is made from the element chromium, which is a hard, shiny, element. It is mainly found in the mineral chromite. Besides automobiles, chrome can also be used on several other products, such as household fixtures and chrome stools.
Chrome can be used on numerous products found on a car. Two of the most popular are hubcaps and rims. Chrome-plated hubcaps can frequently be spotted rolling down the street, and are featured on various automobile shows, music videos, and in automobile magazines. Today, there are even shops that specialize specifically in chrome hubcaps and rims. However, chrome can be added to other parts of the vehicle as well. That includes the grill, the engine, and even the manufacturer’s emblem! Placing chrome on these parts helps to increase the life of one’s precious investment. Though chrome stools have no hubcaps, or wheels for that matter, they can still represent the longevity and attractiveness of the plating.
When you look at chrome stools or see four glimmering chrome hubcaps rolling down the street, do you ever wonder how parts of the car are chromed? Before chroming a part, it must be polished until it shines. The purpose is to remove the imperfections in castings and also avoid future chrome platings from sinking into tiny surface imperfections. Careful preparation must also be done when chroming hardware, particularly to prevent losing any parts. Lastly, cast wheels must be polished cautiously. This seals the surface and gives the chrome and nickel plates a smooth surface. Chrome stools also undergo a similar process when parts such as the backrest, footrest, stem, and base are chromed.
Chrome gives today’s automobiles a special “bling bling” shine that sets them apart from the others. Though chrome stools are less mobile, the plating gives them the look and durability for all of your sitting needs. There is no doubt about it. Chrome stools put you in the driver’s seat!
