What is hard chrome plating?

Hard chrome plating is the term given to the electroplating process where chromium is distributed from a chromic acid solution.

Hard Chrome PlatingThere are a variety of types of hard chrome which include porous chromium, micro-porous chromium, crack free chromium and micro-cracked chromium.

The micro-cracked coatings and porous coatings must acquire a minimum thickness between 80 and 120┬Ám in order for them to confer adequate corrosion resistance. These platings are designed to retain lubricant which is used for sliding and bearing types of applications.

Chrome plating is the solution for resisting wear and corrosion along with its tribological (low friction) characteristics.
