The success of hard chrome plating can be attributed to the many benefits and unique characteristics of the process. The increased hardness alone would not be sufficient to secure widespread use, as a number of hard materials and hardening processes are available. It is the combination of the improved qualities below that give hard chrome plating such remarkable results.
Chrome plated bar is chromium-plated steel product that can be supplied as piston rods in standard hydraulic cylinder and pneumatic applications
As a professional hard chrome plated bar manufacturer and supplier,Datong Hydraulic has been supplying and exporting chrome piston rod for almost 20 years.
Electro-deposited chrome is extremely hard, typically 66-70 HRC. Through hard chrome plating, the surface hardness of your component is increased without modifying its properties.
Hard chrome has a very high resistance to atmospheric oxidation and a good resistance to most oxidizing and reducing agents (with the exception to Chlorides and other Halides).
Hard chrome rodhas a very low coefficient of friction when compared to steel. This allows a component to operate at a lower temperature during operation, extending the life of your equipment.
Sacrificial Wear Layer
Since hard chrome deposits can be removed with chemical strippers, without destructive effect to base material, the part can be stripped and re-plated repeatedly when worn.
The high hardness and low frictional properties of hard chrome, provide excellent resistance to abrasion and mechanical contact.
Microcrack characteristics of hard chrome allows for oil retention which improves lubricity of plated parts.
