Chrome plating is a process of covering or plating an object with a layer of chromium for aesthetic and/or protective purposes.
As chromium is a naturally occurring metallic element, chrome plating an object can increase its wear resistance/strength and improve corrosion resistance; it can also alter the object’s appearance, giving it a metallic and often highly polished look.
What types of industrial equipment benefit from hard chrome plating?
Shafts and rotors
Hard chrome plating is often used on commercial or industrial vehicle parts exposed to the weather. It helps the parts of the vehicle resist normal wear and decay that occurs due to constant exposure to the elements. Additionally, a chrome-plated piece enhances performance, increases durability, and allows equipment to function more smoothly over the longer product life cycle of an industrial or commercial machine.Chrome plated bar is chromium-plated steel product that can be supplied as piston rods in standard hydraulic and pneumatic applications.
