Enhance Durability and Performance with Greystone's Hard Chrome Plating Services

Greystone provides Hard Chrome Plating services that significantly improve the durability and performance of your metal components. With a commitment to excellence and over 90 years of industry-leading expertise, Greystone stands as your trusted partner in delivering Hard Chrome Plating solutions that exceed industry standards and customer expectations.

At Greystone, we don't just provide the chrome plating process; we engineer excellence into every layer, ensuring the chrome layers meet the highest standards. Our technicians skillfully electroplate chromium onto a range of metal surfaces, producing superior hardness, wear resistance, and corrosion protection. Whether it's Aluminum, Copper, Bronze, Steel, Stainless Steel, Inconel or other exotic materials, our precision plating delivers unmatched results. We also design and fabricate all of our tooling in-house to plate the most difficult geometries, including bores and geometries that don’t have a natural line-of- sight.

Application Considerations:

  • Reduced Friction and Galling: Hard Chrome plating can reduce friction and minimize galling between sliding or moving components, leading to smoother operation and less wear.
  • Erosion Resistance: Hard Chrome plating can protect components from erosion caused by high- velocity fluids or abrasive particles, improving the component’s longevity.
  • Tribological Improvement: Hard Chrome plating's unique combination of hardness and lubricity can significantly improve the tribological properties of components, enhancing their performance in sliding, rotating, or contacting applications.
  • Dimensional Restoration: Hard Chrome plating can be used to restore worn or undersized components back to their original dimensions, extending their lifespan and functionality.
  • Chemical Resistance: Hard chrome plating improves component durability against chemicals and environmental factors. As a result, these components perform exceptionally well in corrosive or chemically aggressive environments.
  • Repair and Salvage: Hard chrome plating can save costs by fixing damaged parts instead of manufacturing new ones. It repairs or salvages components affected by wear, corrosion, or damage.
  • Thermal Resistance: Components with Hard Chrome plating can withstand high temperatures and thermal cycling, making them suitable for applications involving heat exposure.
  • Uniform Coating Thickness: Hard chrome plating ensures consistent and even coating thickness on the entire surface of the component.
  • Compatibility with Various Materials: Hard Chrome plating can be applied to a wide range of substrate materials, including metals and alloys, making it versatile for various industrial applications.
