hard chrome plating

Hard chrome plating protects all your mechanical parts from abrasion wear, whether on new or reconditioned parts.

A old and tried method that has never been equaled, hard chrome has an unequaled “friction-hardness combination”, guaranteeing excellent resistance to abrasive wear .

Its value for money is excellent.

Our line consists of 11 plating cells. It is fully computerized and therefore able to monitor and record all key processing parameters, guaranteeing quality and reliability.

We have the capacity to chrome plate parts up to: 6000 x d.1200, 6 tons.

Hard chrome plating specifications

Verbrugge, a company specialized in Steel, stainless steel, copper, cast metal, etc., chrome plating, guarantees the excellence of its process. For steel surface treatment, you have a choice in terms of thickness of the deposit, the grade of the mechanical part, its shape, hardness , etc. The electrolytic treatment of metals allows friction of the support to be reduced by 50% while increasing its corrosion resistance.  Discover all the features of steel chrome plating on our technical sheet.
