All About Hard Chrome Plating

Surface engineering is a hot topic these days, with applications throughout a wide range of industrial sectors. Engineering surface treatments and coatings can bring specialist properties of corrosion and wear resistance, without compromising the characteristics of the substrate or base metal. Many new processes are emerging, their innovations and developments sometimes outpacing any proven industrial demand or performance demonstration. There is vapor deposition, implantation, an expansive array of thermal spray coatings, and many others, all attempting to attain the ultimate hard, tough, wear resistant, low friction and anti-corrosion surface.Click to Read more about hard chrome plating Your Satisfaction Guaranteed.

And yet, for many applications, such a coating already exists, with qualities too long taken for granted or even overlooked, and its development too long neglected. Hard Chrome Plating brings a wide variety of desirable properties and characteristics; properties that many engineers require of their components and products.
What is Hard Chrome?

Hard Chrome Plating is an electrolytic process utilizing a chromic acid based electrolyte. The part is made the cathode and, with the passage of a DC current via lead anodes, chromium metal builds on the component surface.Request more information on hard chrome plating A wide variety of parts can be coated; it requires only the proper fixturing, a large enough bath, sufficient lifting capacity, and adequate power sources. Hard Chrome Plating offers many attractive properties to the engineer.
