    Chrome Plating Question- Nec 2008

    Question: What article of the NEC 2008 does a Chrome Plating Shop have to follow?


    options are: 1= Art 669 Electro Plating, 2= Art 668 Electrolytic Cells, 3= Art 516 Spray, Dripping/Coating, 4= None

    I would say no on 668

    ARTICLE 668

    Electrolytic Cells

    668.1 Scope.
    The provisions of this article apply to the installation
    of the electrical components and accessory equipment
    of electrolytic cells, electrolytic cell lines, and process
    power supply for the production of aluminum, cadmium, chlorine,
    copper, fluorine, hydrogen peroxide, magnesium, sodium,
    sodium chlorate, and zinc.

    [COLOR="#FF0000"]Not covered by this article are cells used as a source of
    electric energy and for electroplating processes and cells
    used for the production of hydrogen.[/COLOR]
    This does not sound like chrome plating to me.

    ARTICLE 516
    Spray Application, Dipping,
    and Coating Processes

    516.1 Scope.
    This article covers the regular or frequent application
    of flammable liquids, combustible liquids, and combustible
    powders by spray operations and the application of
    flammable liquids, or combustible liquids at temperatures
    above their flashpoint, by dipping, coating, or other means.

    It sure seems like this applies

    ARTICLE 669
    Electroplating
    669.1 Scope.
    The provisions of this article apply to the
    installation of the electrical components and accessory
    equipment that supply the power and controls for electroplating,
    anodizing, electropolishing, and electrostripping.
    For purposes of this article, the term electroplating shall be
    used to identify any or all of these processes.

        I'm with iwire and Smart $ on this. Chrome plating is just electroplating with chromium instead of silver, gold, or some other metal.
