More About Chrome Plated Steel
Chrome plated bars are produced from commercial grade cold finished or hot rolled steel bars. After centerless grinding the steel bars are polished and then hard-chrome plated (usually up to .001" thick). The bar may be induction hardened to core depth of .050" minimum and have a surface hardness of RC50 minimum. These specialized chrome plated bars are typically used for shafting in the manufacture of hydraulic cylinders.
