Coastal Hydraulics also has the ability to rechrome hydraulic rod cylinders. After grinding off all the existing chrome, the cylinder is replated and ground back to specifications. This is an alternative method to machining new, when machining new is no longer cost effective.
Hard Chrome plating (also known as “Industrial Chrome”) is applied to ferrous and nonferrous materials to improve wear and abrasion resistance, reduce friction, prevent seizing and galling, and to restore the dimensions of undersized parts.
Hard Chrome can be applied to all types of stainless steel alloys, most ferrous metals, and some nonferrous metals including copper and brass.
