U.S. Chrome has been defining quality, precision, and innovation in the chrome plating industry for over 80 years. Here are a few of the reasons why US Chrome is set apart from the rest.
Think U.S. Chrome
We have been helping engineers find solutions to surface coating challenges for over 80 years.
Our proprietary plating processes create a superior finish on anything that we plate. These methods have been tried, tested, and proved to be better than traditional plating processes. These processes and techniques helped grow U.S. Chrome’s business into the industry leader it is today.
The U.S. Chrome plating process is considered to be the ultimate in quality and precision in hard chromium plating. As you evaluate the company you choose to do your hard chrome plating, it’s worth knowing what makes our process so much better than the others.
Reliability and extreme accuracy are critical. The U.S. Chrome method and approach for precision plating has successfully coated production parts for years. First, bores are electropolished and then precision plated to final blueprint dimensions and surface finish.
The U.S. Chrome process provides uniformity of deposition and control of any edge “build-up.” The combination of these features, in addition to rigid federal/military standards, guarantee reliable product design.
Deposits cannot be separated through peeling, chipping, or flaking due to the molecular bond of chromium in basis metals that the U.S. Chrome plating process provides. Rugged durability against seizure, galling and wear are guaranteed through our process of providing a hard chromium deposit and a chromium plated aluminum engine which demands superior bond strength.
Our proprietary plating process provides precision chroming and electroplating in uniform deposits. This process increases the ability of chromium to plate in difficult recessed areas. Our ability to uniformly plate the recessed areas of molds, or dies, protects and prevents them from corrosion and abrasion as it will for any critical items you have, assuring you a longer life for your product.
U.S. Chrome meets the exacting requirements of the military and NASA as well as the aerospace, medical and precision manufacturing industries. When exacting, durable and reliable standards are required, companies call US Chrome. Our certifications and list of well-known companies says it all. It also gives you the assurance and confidence that you are getting a superior level of quality.

We would like to hang our hats on 80 years of experience, but we know we can’t stop there. Our investment in R&D has always set U.S. Chrome apart from its competitors. It has given us the capability of depositing precision, uniform coatings of chromium on a variety of shapes, contours, and surfaces on a variety of base metals, machined parts and an infinite number of products.
To this day, it is our research and development and our engineering experience and expertise that continues to drive U.S. Chrome to be one of the industry leaders in the innovation of new, high quality, precision, performance coating technologies, services, and products.
The U.S. Chrome plating process for industrial chromium plating has been recognized as one of the most dependable, scientifically controlled methods of incorporating the metallurgical properties of chromium into an infinite variety of products.
Failed, rejected or imperfect coating of your parts cost you money in the material and work you put into them. Our precision plating services means fewer rejected parts.
An appropriate setup before coating will result in a better, more consistent coating quality with less cleanup work from imperfections on the part afterwards.
Certifications include ISO Certification and NADCAP Certification, among others. We are also RoHS and REACH Compliant. See our complete list of certifications.
