Chrome plating battles extreme temperatures

Chrome plating battles extreme temperatures

A new low-temperature, black chrome plating is now available on a variety of linear motion components, including shafts, bushings, and guides, as well as on ballscrews and other parts. Through electroplating, an alloyed surface is formed to create an anti-corrosion coating (black film) on the component. The compound is chemically deposited on the product to prevent cracking or peeling, even during extreme temperatures and repeated flexing. The black chrome plating is also suitable for use in optical applications where low light reflection is required.
