Hard Chrome Surface Treatment

Hard Chrome Surface Treatment

Hard chrome is a lubricious surface treatment creating excellent material flow and radii formability as well as improved wear resistance. Our chrome is 67 to 69 HRc with a coefficient of friction of .33 (overall average) by an independent testing laboratory. Chrome is lubricious for excellent radii formability.

Benefits of Hard Chrome:

  • Building up material for grind stock
  • Lubricity
  • Reduce oil in press
  • Galling preventative
  • Extends tool life
  • Reduces scrap costs
  • Increases throughput
  • Excellent release agent
  • Reduce wear of tooling
  • Reduce need for repeated polishing
  • Decreases downtime
  • Press ready finish

Great for these applications:

  • Roll-Shaft plating
  • ID Plating
  • OD Plating
  • Injection/Rubber/Thermo-set molds
  • Forging Dies
  • Stamping Dies
  • Bore plating or tapered plating

Maintenance and repair of stamping dies:

  • Minor Weld Repair on Stamping Dies
  • Pre-polish
  • Stoning
  • Final Polish
