Hard Chrome Plating Aluminum & Electroplating Aluminum
Aluminum offers engineers weight saving advantages in their product design; however, aluminum has poor wear and friction properties.
In addition, the surface oxide layer of this chemically active metal, which gives it corrosion resistance, makes it a very difficult metal to plate. This inherent problem is exacerbated by the vast number of alloys offered commercially.
US Chrome has developed specific proprietary pre-treatment cycles to remove the oxide layer from any aluminum alloy resulting in maximum attainable bond strengths of our hard chrome coating.
