Industrial Hard Chromium Plating
As the name implies, hard chromium is just that - Hard. It is 68-70 Rc (Rockwell Scale) which makes it suitable for a variety of industrial applications that require corrosion and wear resistance. It is also the finest plated metal deposition to utilize when specifications call for smooth and flawless characteristics on the roll face. Hard chromium plated rolls, as well as, roll replating boast high strength and sturdiness, and improves metal surface quality of the rolls.
