Electroplating is a process that uses electric current to reduce dissolved metal cations so that they form a thin coherent metal coating on an electrode. Because of its excellent properties, Chrome plating is widely used as the exterior layer and functional plating for the protection of a decorative plating system, which has wide used in the prototyping surface treatment.
Chrome plating is Protective decorative ,it’s not only requires the plating to have good corrosion resistance in the atmosphere, but also has a good appearance.The main characteristic of Chrome plating it has bright appearance, has good friction resistance,but the rust-proof ability is inferior to the zinc plating.Mainly be suited for strict appearance quality,it would be superior to the oxidation. It’s arguably considered to be much more fashionable and modern due to the shininess of the finish.
The advantage of chrome plating:
It can be applied to a wide range of metals, including stainless steel, copper, brass and more
Enhance the product surface with a high quality ingot
Enhance the product corrosion prevention
Increase the wear resistance products.
When you add all of these advantages up, you’re getting a quality chrome finish that reduces operating costs and minimizes downtime thanks to the improved wear resistance, hardness and corrosion response of your plated parts.
