HARDCHROME

ADVANTAGES OF HARD CHROME

  • Resistance to friction and abrasion wear;
  • Increases surface hardness;
  • Corrosion and oxidation resistance;
  • High temperature resistance;
  • Resistance to chemical action;
  • Increases tool life;
  • Reduces production costs;
  • Significantly improves the release of parts.

Technical information

HARDNESS – High between 68/70 Hr (rockwell), 900/1000 Hv (vickers) average, Mohs scale of 8.5;
FRICTION – Low coefficient with high sliding power, with no need for lubricants, as it does not generate particle adhesion;
WEAR – Hard chrome-plated material resists about 5 to 8 times more than without hard chrome;
RESISTANCE – Absence of oxidation at high and low temperatures and resistance to corrosion, chemical action, among others;
THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY – 93W mK.
