Hard Chrome Plating

Hard Chrome Plating is a process that is used extensively in the Hydraulics Industry. Also known as Industrial Chrome, this type of finish can be applied to most ferrous metals and some non-ferrous metals such as copper and brass. It can also be applied to all types of stainless steel alloys. Hard Chrome is applied to metals as a means of improving resistance to wear and abrasion, preventing seizing and galling, restoring the dimensions of undersized parts and reducing friction.

A Hard Chrome finish improves the performance of objects such as:

  • Hydraulic pistons
  • Print/Paper rollers
  • Pistons
  • Hydraulic repairs
