For the high-grade surface treatment of metal components for the most critical branches of industry, Plating Solutions masters several advance thermic and galvanic techniques.
By equipping a metal part of a machine or other tool with a coating, consisting out of hard chromium, the material characteristics of both metals are combined. The base metal, for instance, supports resistance against mechanical burdening, whilst the coating gives protection against, for instance, corrosion, erosion or aggressive substances.
In the process of implementing hard chrome, the coating is very hard and equipped with the right surface structure. This ensures a high level of erosion resistance. While still maintaining the right structure to allow it to be lubricated in case there is friction with other parts or sealings.
This technique is applied a lot in heavy hydraulic and mechanical systems in neutral environments like in mechanical engineering and the paper industry.
