Hard chromium is a common plating, primarily used to increase the service life of functional parts by increasing their resistance to wear, abrasion, heat and corrosion. It is also useful for restoring the original dimensions of worn parts. This paper compares the properties of the conventional and high-efficiency chromium platings, electrodeposited on AISI 4130 alloy steel, in regard to aeronautical standards. The effects of part geometry and plating thickness on the predicted behavior in service, as well as expected trends in the aircraft industry, are discussed.
