        Chapter 4: Electroplating Experimentation | Raw to Ready: Komatsu

        This chapter of Raw to Ready: Komatsu highlights how the discovery of an ingredient in a piece of crocoite becomes the base for a variety of colors. Over 50 years of experimentation with electroplating on countless metals leads to the discovery of the first viable chromium electroplating method by Collin G. Fink. Chromium's resistance to scratches and corrosion opens the doors to all things chromium, from car bumpers to the smooth steel piston of Komatsu's giant earthmover's rock-solid suspension.
