Past, Present and Future of Hard Chrome Plating

Throughout 2017 we have been bringing you updates as new tighter restrictions are placed against known carcinogen, Hexavalent Chromium and its associated processes. One of the most widely used is Hard Chrome Plating. Where decorative Chrome Plating is a layer of Nickel with a very thin amount of Chromium on top, Hard Chrome builds up a thick layer of the dense and hard material and is often used in high wear environments to protect components. As these new restrictions come into place we have encouraged UK manufacturers to look for alternatives including the process we provide HVOF. Obviously this gives us a biased opinion on the subject, and so we thought we’d share the incredibly insightful and comprehensive article published by Products Finishing on the past, present and future of Hard Chrome Plating.
