There are 7 types of chrome plating application, which faithfully reproduce the surface conditions of the material.
 
 
 

PROTECTIVE HARD CHROME PLATING

 
 
 
 
 
This process is used when it is only to provide protection against corrosion or wear, without compliance with tolerances. Each coating is determined according to the intended objective and the thickness can vary between 5-15µm.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

HARDCHROME PLATING BY MEASURE

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As the name implies, the hard chrome layer is deposited with a uniform thickness on the surface of the part, fulfilling the required tolerance values, thus allowing its assembly without mechanical finishes. Custom hard chrome plating prevents further roughing, which is why this is the most preferred process.
 
 
 
 

THICK HARD CHROMING

 


Applied mainly on parts subsequently subjected to mechanical finishes. The chrome plating is deposited with a thickness greater than the desired values and rectified according to the customer's request. (Ex: Cylinders, shafts, rods).
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

MATTE HARD CHROME

 
 
 
 
 
In this case, the pieces are textured before hard chrome plating. The surface texture can be more or less worked according to the need. This type of hard chrome plating is applied conditionally, since the base texture can cause the formation of irregularities.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

DOUBLE HARD CHROMING

 
This type of hard chrome plating is applied mainly to parts subject to high temperatures and deformations during the work process. Its application considerably reduces the possibility of formation of cracks that would otherwise easily occur due to the high expansion coefficient of the base material, when subjected to high temperatures. This method provides a high resistance to corrosion and these characteristics are acquired through the application of two differentiated hard chrome layers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

HARD CHROME REPAIR

 
In the case of restoration, it involves renewing the worn out hard chrome, in order to prolong its durability. The material is restored, respecting all the characteristics of the coating, thus returning it to its original state.
 
 
 
 
 
 

LOCALIZED HARD CHROME

 
It applies to situations in which there is an anomaly located in an area (or several) of the hard chrome-plated part and avoids having to renew all the existing chrome plating, carrying out the treatment only in the desired area, thus generating value by reducing costs for the client.
Other complementary services with regard to the hard chrome surface treatment are:
  • Glass microsphere jet;
  • Construction of suspensions coated with Plastisol;
  • Surface polishing;
  • External grinding (up to 3000mm between points and 400mm in diameter);
  • Interior grinding (up to 400mm and 350mm in diameter);
  • Flat grinding (1500x500mm)
