Hardchrome Plating
When machinery parts shown signs of wear and tear, they should be withdrawn from service. Awaiting parts can mean lost production and profits. To save both time and money, Hard Chrome Plating is a proper method of reclaiming worn or mis-machined parts.

Hard Chrome Plating is a treatment utilizing the electrolytic deposition of chromium for engineering applications. It is always applied to items that are made of steel, especially hardened steel. It is metallic appearance but is not particularly reflective. The thinner deposits being used to extend the life of components in wear applications and corrosive environments. The thicker deposits being used for salvage and repair of worn, damaged or incorrectly machined components. Some examples would be hydraulic cylinder, pump shafts, rotors, rods, rollers, piston rings, mold surfaces, dies, screws, thread guides, gun bores, etc.
