Hardchrome Plating

hardchrome plating

Hardchrome plating (also known as Industrial Chrome) is a form of electroplating a layer of chromium onto ferrous and non ferrous materials, to improve wear and abrasion, reduce friction and recover dimensions of worn parts.

Advantages of Hardchrome Plating include:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • Wear resistance
  • High Hardness
  • Heat resistance
  • Low co-efficient of friction

Applications for hard chrome plating include:

  • Piston Rings and valves
  • Hydraulic rams
  • Tools and dies
  • Printing wear roller surfaces
  • Motor shafts
  • Gears
  • Bearing and seal surfaces
