Hard Chrome Plating is used in a variety of industrial applications and is known primarily for its strength, corrosion resistance, excellent wear and lubricating properties. It can be applied to a variety of base metals to strengthen or repair equipment and components returning them back to the correct dimensions without compromising the original material properties.
