Extended Life All chromium processes extend product life by determined by the thickness and wear characteristics of chromium. Special electroplating processes and engineered compounds such as DuraFin SFP® offer additional product life and superior wear and corrosion resistance. X X   X  
Lubricity All hard chromium processes vastly improve lubricity. Our proprietary DuraFin SFP® process provides additional lubricity, corrosion resistance, and product life beyond standard plating. Review statistical data from testing here. X X   X  
Uniform Thickness Precise anode-to-cathode ratios are required to achieve close-tolerances in chrome thickness. Regardless of marketing claims, capabilities vary widely between electroplaters. The difference lies largely in quality control. We recommend performing your own tests to verify an electroplater’s ability. X X   X X
