Flash chrome is a thinner layer of chrome of less than 25 µm suitable for parts that experience lighter sliding wear and require some corrosion protection. Flash chrome has lower friction, improved release properties and ideal for dimensionally sensitive parts that don’t need grinding after coating.
Flash chrome, being so thin, replicates the underlying surface and thus a highly polished surface will maintain the gloss look. Flash chrome can also be applied with a matte finish which provides an etch for improved adhesion of the chrome and also improves wear resistance.
The polymer sealing process “MLP” can also be applied to flash chrome to improve the corrosion resistance and improve the friction properties.

Please note that our flash chrome is for industrial purposes, not decorative. We also do not chrome automotive components.
