Over 75 years ago, U.S. Chrome developed a hard chrome plating process that offered superior coating quality, compared to traditional hard chrome plating methods. This process helped grow U.S. Chrome’s business into the industry leader it is today. The U.S. Chrome plating process is considered to be the ultimate in quality and precision in hard chromium plating. As you evaluate the company you choose to do your hard chrome plating, it’s worth knowing what makes our process so much better than the others.
Reliability and extreme accuracy are critical. The U.S. Chrome process’s method and approach for precision plating and long-life of machine tool has successfully plated cannon and other gun barrels for years. First, bores are electropolished and then precision plated to final blueprint dimensions and surface finish.
Controls Edge “Buildup” for Heavy Deposits
The U.S. Chrome process provides uniformity of deposition and control of any edge “buildup.” The combination of these features, in addition to rigid federal/military standards, guarantee reliable product design.
Provides the capability of plating on a wide variety of basis metals
Deposits cannot be separated through peeling, chipping or flaking due to the molecular bond of chromium in basis metal that the U.S. Chrome plating process provides.
Rugged durability against seizure, galling and wear are guaranteed through the U.S. Chrome’s process of providing a hard chromium deposit and a chromium plated aluminum engine which demands superior bond strength.
Deposits Chromium Uniformly on Irregular Shapes
The U.S. Chrome plating process provides precision chroming and electroplating in uniform deposits. This process increases the ability of chromium to plate in difficult recessed areas. Our ability to uniformly plate the recessed areas of molds or dies, protects and prevents them from corrosion and abrasion as it will for any critical items you have, assuring you a longer life for your product.
U.S. Chrome meets the exacting requirements of the military and NASA as well as the aerospace, medical and precision manufacturing industries.
