THIN DENSE CHROME SOLUTIONS FOR AEROSPACE COMPONENTS

Using the Electrolizing® coating for aerospace components  has many advantages. Below we will discuss the main reasons you would choose Electrolizing® in order to reduce maintenance costs and enhance performance.

USING ELECTROLIZING® IN THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY

Electrolizing® is a hard chrome coating for aerospace components that require improved wear, corrosion resistance, broad temperature range, and uniform  deposits. With deposits that can range from 0.00005” to 0.001”, and tolerances of +/-0.000025”, the thin, precise, hard coating ensures component tolerances and functionality remain true to design.

Considered a cold process (<180°F), Electrolizing® prevents distortion, annealing, and dimensional changes from occurring in the base metal.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Fully certified to AMS 2438
  • Thin even deposit that does not require secondary machining
  • Deposits  as low as 0.00005” will not affect part tolerances
  • Increased wear resistance
  • High hardness
  • Cold application process means no part distortion
  • Enhanced corrosion resistance
  • Extensive onsite testing and quality control
  • Absolute bond to base metal
  • Performs in a vacuum environment

The Electrolizing® surface coatings were designed for  ferrous and non-ferrous base metals. Al-Coat® was developed to support Design Engineers who needed a surface coating for aluminum substrates that required the same performance enhancements that Electrolizing offered.

CUSTOM SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY AEROSPACE APPLICATION

Electrolizing® has decades of experience meeting the demands of the Aerospace Industry, working with some of the most recognizable names in this field. We work closely with each of our customers to establish requirements and tailor a solution that best meets those needs.

Extensive inspection and testing is conducted that includes, but is not limited to, 100% visual and deposit thickness, wear resistance, hardness, corrosion resistance, adhesion, hydrogen embrittlement, and surface characteristics. Experienced staff will support all quality control and quality assurance initiatives including FAI, manufacturing and quality plans, controls plans, FMEAs, gauge R&Rs and more for your project.
