TM105 Engineered Hard Chrome

TM105 Hard ChromeA unique hard chrome that is brighter, harder and more corrosion resistant than standard hard chrome plating. Deposits of our TM 105 can be plated up to 72 Rockwell C. Its brightness and low coefficient of friction make it ideal for the production of molds and metal cutting tools.

TM 105 is best known for its release properties, excellent wear resistance and anti-seizure characteristics. This coating is popular in the aerospace, nuclear, transportation, canning and food vending industries to name a few.
