Contrary to decorative chrome layers of 0,5µm, in the case of hard chrome the issue is the technical value of the chrome layer. Layer thicknesses of 30 to 2,000µm are here possible. Hardness: 62HRC.
Thermal spraying is an often applied technique for repairing damaged or worn machine components. The most important characteristic is, that no tensions or distortions can occur in the material.
Grit blasting or sand blasting is a technique where grit grains are blown against a component by compressed air. This way a certain roughness is obtained.
Nickel-plating can be done in 2 ways: electrolytically and auto-catalytically, also called chemical nickel plating. It is used as final layer or as under layer in case of hard chrome as protection against corrosion.
Through an electrochemical process it is possible to provide aluminium parts with an oxide layer.
For some wear sensitive components it is sensible to work with sintered ceramic. Under high pressure, ceramic powder is pressed and sintered up to 1,750°C to a solid ceramic component. In case of very precise parts.
As coating of pull rolls, rubber is often applied. Depending on the application, we determine the desired profile. For the pharmaceutical and the food processing industry there is an FDA authorized type.
