ELECTROLOYSM - Hard chrome
Our ELECTROLOYSM process, which
is a quality hard chrome impregnation process, features excellent wear resistant
capabilities, as well as high corrosion protection and minimal edge build-up
characteristics. This process is also referred
to as thin dense chromium plating. A satin appearance is the
result of this process. Widely used in all applications that require extra performance,
ELECTROLOYSM can be used on all tool steel alloys and tungsten carbide.
the ability for oil to be retained in tiny micro-depressions created by this process.
lengthens the service life of fixtures, punches, and tooling
by protecting against galling and other symptoms of friction.
Cosmetic. ELECTROLOYSM often disguises unsightly repairs
such as welds, nickel build-up, etc.
Hardness. 68-72 Rc.
Size change. Minimum
size change that could occur would be less than twenty millionths (.000020) of an inch and
on heavier applications, two tenths (.0002) of an inch without distortion.
