Precision Chrome


Precision Chrome

Precision Hard Chrome is a specialised variant of chrome plating where the deposit thickness and coverage is controlled to close tolerances. It requires special anodes, cathode extensions and jigging, and eliminates the need for final grinding.

Subsequently, a Precision Chrome coating is harder, has superior substrate bonding, gives more wear resistance and requires shorter production times than traditional Hard Chrome solutions.

For advanced chrome treatments see our Apticote 100 Hard Chrome range.
