What is hardchrome plating?
Like nickel, chromium plating applies a corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant layer. By providing a metal part with a hardchrome coating, the strong properties of both metals are combined. For example, the base metal can absorb the mechanical stresses of the part, while the coating protects it against corrosion, wear or aggressive substances. In hardchrome plating, the coating is very hard and provided with the correct surface structure. Among other things, this provides higher wear resistance.
Technoplating is the only company in the Netherlands that uses HEEF 25. This guarantees exceptionally high hardness, corrosion resistance and wear resistance by applying our techniques. The layer thicknesses for chrome plating can vary from 10 microns to 1000 microns and more. Thicker layers (from 400 microns) are applied in several operations. Products can also be partially treated on request. Hardchrome can be execute in combination with other treatments.
