Hard Chrome Plating

Hard chrome plating can make components as good as new and potentially last longer.

The process starts by grinding out the wear, corrosion or damaged area. The area is then hard chrome plated oversize and reground back to original size.

Hard chrome plating is a effective treatment for a variety of metals such as –

  • Brass
  • Cast Iron
  • Copper
  • Stainless Steel
  • Steel
  • Tool Steel

The hardness of the chrome after plating is 1100-1200 H.V. giving a greater wear resistance. Whilst micro-cracking 300cm -1 improves corrosion resistance.

All round metal components can be repaired by hard chrome plating, often at a fraction of the cost of a replacement.

Parts that we refurbish on a regular basis include –

  • Armature Shafts
  • Gear Shafts
  • Hydraulic Cylinders
  • Hydraulic Ram
  • Motorcycle Forks
  • Pistons
  • Print Rollers
  • Wear Rails & Rods
