BENEFITS OF INDUSTRIAL CHROME PLATING

Industrial Hard Chrome Plating

For improved wear and corrosion resistance, it’s tough to beat hard chrome plating. The hardness and durability of a chromium metal surface finish means your parts will last longer even under severe mechanical contact and wear situations. A chrome surface also resists corrosion, making it suitable for use in harsh environments or where other plating materials would wear away, exposing the substrate metal to corrosion attack.

 

Here at Hard Chrome Specialists, we’re a PA leader in surface finishing and plating and are proud of our hard chrome plating technology. Since 1988 we have been meeting the needs of customers across PA in cities like York and Harrisburg and are equipped to take care of your industrial hard chrome needs. We have over 14,000 square feet of space in our PA facility and can handle any job.

 

Other Advantages of Hard Chrome

 

The practical wear and corrosion advantages of hard chrome are what makes it so popular, but there are other advantages that make it even more appealing:

 

  • It can be applied to a wide range of metals, including stainless steel, copper, brass and more
  • Can be applied at low temperatures, meaning little effect to the substrate metal
  • Is suitable for complex and irregular geometries, including holes and bores
  • Adherence is excellent, meaning little risk of de-lamination or flaking during use

 

When you add all of these advantages up, you’re getting a quality chrome finish that reduces operating costs and minimizes downtime thanks to the improved wear resistance, hardness and corrosion response of your plated parts.

 

Appearance Benefits as Well

 

On top of the practical and empirical benefits of hard chrome, it also provides a bright and appealing finish, making it suitable for parts that will be visible or on display. An even smoother finish can be achieved by grinding and polishing, making our hard chrome plating ideal for ball bearing and sliding guide applications as well.
