Hard Chrome Plating

We offer a hard chrome plating service using Chromclad 2500. Chromclad 2500 is a high efficiency hard chrome system that helps eliminate the need to mask or stop off the substrate and which plates upto four times faster than conventional systems to produce an extremely hard (1100-1250HV) microcracked deposit with superior wear and corrosion resistance.

Overview: Hard chrome plating deposits are widely used for components that require hard, abrasion resistant surfaces or for building up of undersized and worn parts. The value of chromium for such purposes lies in its hardness, resistance to abrasion, passivity of surface, and its 'anti-seize' non galling properties when applied to rotating or reciprocating parts.

Tanks: We offer tank sizes up to 3' x 2' x 2.5'.

Hardness: Hardness is 1100-1250HV.

Thickness: Standard thickness is 0.13mm. Maximum thickness achievable is 0.3mm - 0.4mm after which the coating becomes brittle. Surfaces can be built up with nickel to achieve a thicker deposit and then coated with hard chrome. A hard chrome deposit on nickel should be a minimum of 13µm for adequate wear resistance.

Applications: Typical applications include:
