ANKOR® Hard Chrome Processes

ANKOR® hard chrome processes deliver high efficiency, exceptional adhesion, and uniform coverage on a variety of metal substrates. The versatile, high performance hard chrome solutions enable consistent and reliable performance at the lowest cost of ownership.

ANKOR processes provide exceptional hardness and abrasive wear resistance, even at low current densities or high temperatures as often experienced with large component geometries. For high build-up coatings, ANKOR minimizes post-plate grinding and roughness while delivering a smooth surface, superior metal distribution and reduced plating time and costs. Reliable chrome-on-chrome adhesion is simple to achieve.

Because ANKOR hard chrome processes are etch-free, attack on the base metal is virtually eliminated. The increased efficiency and high speed of the processes result in reduced energy costs and increased capacity.

ANKOR hard chrome processes provide optimized brightness and a more uniform metal distribution compared to other hard chromium processes. The processes are designed to simplify plating on critical substrates such as stainless steel, cast iron, high tensile steel, electroless nickel and chrome-on-chrome.
