SAFE Chrome is a great fit in any industry. We have ten main
businesses that we strive to better with no PFOS / PFOA additives.
As well as our lower health risk and lower cost of ownership.
Components that are chrome plated are exposed to severe wear and corrosion stresses during service. Chrome plating is an important option in aerospace maintenance, and is used not only on parts that are chrome plated in manufacture, but in rebuilding parts that were not originally chrome plated, in order to restore dimensional tolerances.
Chrome plating improves coefficient friction, increases abrasion resistance and hardness for cutting surfaces (e.g., cotton spindles).
Hydraulics, Stampings, Pistons, Rams Rings & Valves are improved through increased hardness and wear resistance.
Chrome plated Hydraulic Cylinder Rods requiring hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance are the backbone of creating power for lifting heavy loads.
Chrome and chrome-oxide coatings are used to enable lacquer adhesion for canning and packaging applications.
Tail Shafts, Diesel Engine Components and Valves & Beads use chrome plating to increase wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
Surgical instruments require a low coefficient of friction surface for precision work. Chrome also increases operational life and compatibility with sterilization requirements (e.g. autoclave).
Components that are chrome plated are exposed to severe wear and operational stresses during service. The military has tightly controlled specifications for many applications that overlap with the other industry sectors described here.
