Automotive Plating

Auto parts like pistons and shock absorbers need to move while also resisting corrosion. That's why hard chrome plating is often used in the automotive industry.

Chrome Plating for Automotive Applications

Since rust spreads so quickly, it can ruin a paint job faster than you know it. At one time or another, everyone experiences holes in their cars caused by rust. Automotive manufacturers are always looking for new ways to protect their products from wear and tear.

Electroplating for the Automotive Industry from Erie Hard Chrome

Automotive plating isn't confined to only electroplating. Electroless plating is widely used for automotive applications. The use of electroless plating for automotive parts provides a more consistent coating which allows us to have more control over the coating thickness. It can also be a more cost-effective solution for automotive plating since it doesn't require any electrical power.
