Hard Chrome Plating
For wear, buildup of surfaces, rust prevention or chemical resistance (and superior friction qualities), hard chrome electroplating from 1″(25mm) to 60″(1.5m) diameters (internal and external) is the right cost-control answer.
Chromium plating for small or large parts (over a wide variety of metals, including cast iron, steel, stainless steel, copper and aluminum) satisfies the most demanding requirements for durability (up to 72 Rockwell C) as compared with heat treating.
Plating is an Art
We recognize the importance of cleaning prior to metal coating in our plating process. To achieve the required level of cleanliness most parts will be preblasted in our 20 foot blasting room.
To ensure proper bonding and a superior, wear resistant surface, Chromium must be skillfully impregnated in the metal pores.
Plating is an art that benefits from our extensive, in-house expertise in metallurgy, metalworking and plating. We are fully capable of eliminating problems of distortion, offering dimensionally stability and durability characteristics.
For tools and dies, our chrome coatings prolong life and provides improved working efficiencies.
Our electroplating services are called upon by leading industries, including:
- Plastics and Converting
- Metal Service Centers
- Pulp and Paper
- Corrugating and Container
Up to a 60% SAVINGS
Most often, the refurbishing of a worn part with hard chromium plating can save you up to 60% as compared to the cost of a new part and provides durability that will equal or exceed that of the new part.
For a cost effective solution and an ultra hard surface, chromium is in a class by itself.
Among the parts most often rescued from the scrap pile are hydraulic pistons, cylinders, rolls (both faces and journals), dies, molds, crankshafts, and other parts that weren’t machined properly.
Some Commonly Reclaimed Items:
- Rolls for metal processing especially steel and aluminum, paper, corrugating, packaging, wallpaper, rubber, plastics, and chemical industries.
- Worn journals on rubber rolls, without damage to the rubber.
- Hydraulic cylinders
- Piston Rods
- Crusher and quarry parts
- Rolls, dies, tooling – Crankshafts
- Krodon coated rolls
Solving your problems is second nature to us. Our 24 hour service is available to you by calling, faxing or emailing us your specific needs or requirements.
Plating is a Science (Too!)
We recognize that technology is constantly evolving and this holds true for hard chrome plating.
To ensure that our company stays current, we employ both standard chrome and high efficiency chrome baths.
This combination allows us to provide the most superior coating available on every job and the most cost effective solutions in the industry today.
