|Chrome plated rod|
Unique combination of in-house production from steel mills to electroplating,so as to can ensures unmatched quality and consistency of the substrate and surface.
With more than 5 years of experience , Gastac is the pioneer and the technology leader in its fieldin production of hard chrome plated bars and tubes.The unique position of in-house production from steel mill to plating, facilitates unmatched quality and consistency of the base materials and surface. And Gastac is one of the famous supplier of hard chrome plated bars and tubes on the market,at the same time,Gastac can offer extends to professional technical support and customer unique solutions in cut-lengths, packing and inventory management.
As a a critical component in hydraulic cylinders,Chrome-plated bars and tubes are primarily used as piston rods. The basic function of transforming hydraulic power to a linear motion whilst preventing ingress of abrasive media into the hydraulic system will stipulate a set of demands on the rod.
In order to match the requirements in mechanical properties as well as amenability to our plating process,Gastac’s steel grades are optimized in analysis and production method .
Prior to delivery, all Gastac’s products are controlled to ensure optimal micro-crack distribution with high crack density. These properties together with closely controlled pre-treatment, plating process and finishing procedures, guarantee superior corrosion resistance.
Gastac’s quality assurance system includes a thorough final inspection of every single product as well as verification in salt-spray testing of all combinations of steel heat, rolling operation and plating batch. When elevated corrosion resistance is required, Gastac can offers excellent plating.
Due to contamination particles from both outside and inside the hydraulic system,abrasive wear on the rod leads to direct oil leakage and secondary damage on sealing system, which is unacceptable from an environmental and productivity point of view. The consistency in the Cromax process and our extensive quality control system ensures minimal variation in chrome thickness and hardness, which are the most significant parameters from this perspective.
With the right surface roughness and structure as well as an optimized micro-crack distribution, Gastac products secures correct lubrication to the sealing system.
Reducing global CO2 emissions demands smarter product solutions and requires rethinking on many levels: more performance benefits per kilogram of product, less raw materials, and substituting fossil fuel energy sources with primarily fossil-free electricity.
