Chrome Plating Process

Swanson employees, engineers and management have extensive experience in the design, manufacture and utilisation of industrial hard chrome for your cylinders, rods, seal fits and other components. Our ability to repair very large pieces with precision hard chrome makes us unique in the industry. Swanson’s industrial chrome plating has the highest quality in the region.

Cathode: The metal to be plated by another metal
Anode: The metal to be plated onto the cathode
Electrolyte: Conducting solution containing metal ions in which the anode and cathode are placed
Power Source: Supplies a direct current to the anode and oxidizes the metal atoms which dissolve in the solution

Whether you require precise chrome plating and polishing, or heavy chrome plating of several thousands of an inch, meeting a customer’s specialised project needs is a hallmark of Swanson Industries Australia.
