Hard chrome plating
Hard chrome plating is a surface treatment characterized by high resistance to wear and tear, hardness, resistance to corrosion and extreme temperatures. Hard chrome plating meets the special requirements of mechanical engineering production. It must not be mistaken for decorative chrome plating.
The chrome plating plant has two parts. In the first part, we are capable of chrome plating parts that are up to 200 mm in diameter and 2,200 mm in length. Of course, we provide chrome plating of small parts as well. In this part, we carry out individual jobs, as all well as jobs in small and larger series.
In the second part, we are capable of chrome plating parts that are up to 550 mm in diameter and 7,500 mm in length. We are the only company in the Czech Republic that is capable of chrome plating parts of such size.
We are the only chrome plating plant in the Czech Republic that operates independently; other chrome plating plants are part of manufacturing companies. This naturally allows us to respond flexibly to the customers’ requirements, particularly when it comes to delivery times.
Parts exceeding 3,800 mm in length must be chrome plated in two steps (the part must be turned); therefore, there is a double layer in the middle of the part, which must subsequently be polished or ground.

All operations are monitored on a continuous basis and are checked by a third-party authorized entity providing supervision of all activities related to environmental protection, hygiene, occupational safety and waste management.
We also have our own laboratory, where we are able to perform any analyses on a regular basis related to the condition of the electroplating baths, so that we are able to flexibly respond to any changes and thus maintain the baths in the ideal prescribed condition.
We provide chrome plating services for all major Czech engineering companies and for foreign companies. The vast majority of our contracts are intended for export, because a large portion of the contracts from our Czech customers are also intended for export to Western Europe.
