Induction Hardened Chrome Plated Bars

Induction Hardened Chrome Plated Bars are produced by using advanced processing techniques usually on AISI 1045/1050 or 10v45 steel rods, for surface removal, polishing, induction hardening, followed by hard chrome plating to a thickness minimum of 0.0005” or 0.001” per side. The finished product results in a superior impact resistant bar ideal for high quality piston rods capable of handling tough environments.
