Chromium coatings offer a high degree of hardness and good corrosion protection, which can be further increased when using hard chrome. Hard chrome plating comes into play when it comes to the coating of heavily stressed workpieces, such as brake disks, ball valves in pipelines or rollers and cylinders of all kinds.
Fields of use
Chrome plating is often used for components from the mecanical engineering, packaging, medical or automotive industries. However, due to their decorative look, many other sectors use electroplated coatings as industrial coatings.
