The chrome plated ones are going to be brass 52-1-12 valves. Ideal makes a T-shaped valve with the same specs. We could order it as well, but I like the angled 52-1-12 valve a bit better. The control knob isn't hanging out in the way with the angled valve.
The stainless steel valves are part number 54-1-12. Other than the body, the specs are the same.
We probably could get the stainless steel models chrome plated, but that is really overkill (and ~ $30 more). For our use, a stainless steel Ideal valve would probably last a millennium or more. You could leave it to your great, great grandchildren and they can leave it to their great, great grandchildren.
If you want a chrome plated stainless steel valve; I see no reason why we can't order it. The same goes for the T-shaped valves. They come in brass or stainless steel too.
Just let me know and I will check it out.
