|Chrome bar (Chromium plated) is normally electroplated or cold finished product suitable for applications including heavy equip plants, hydraulic cylinders, and general machinery.
Electroplating is a plating process that uses electrical current to reduce cations of a desired material from a solution and coat a conductive bar with a thin layer of chromium.
The principle application area for our chrome bar products is as piston rods for hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders operating in high stress, abrasive and corrosive environments. The weldability and machinability of product are important depending on the application.
The correct grade of chrome bar will have features of wear resistance, corrosion resistance, fine dimensional tolerances and a smooth finish.
