Power Sports Plating Services

U.S. Chrome is one of the global pioneers in plating as the first company to successfully electroplate onto aluminum substrates. In 1979, we began electroplating aluminum powersport engine cylinder bores and in the years since we have plated well over 1 million cylinders. We are also revered as the power sport industry experts in engine cylinder honing.
