We're very big on chrome bar corrosion resistance because it translates to long life, and long life translates to fewer warranty claims and lower operating costs.
Industrial Hard Chrome has been "Redefining the Industry Standards" for corrosion resistance for over 25 years. The enhanced corrosion protection you get from Industrial Hard Chrome in every foot, every pound and every piston rod you buy from us has established that fact. Rusty rods have been forgotten! At IHC we've moved far beyond the head-nodding and vague discussions you hear at other companies to deliver piston rods with an ultra long-lived chrome surface.
We take our market leadership seriously and early on recognized the need for a "quantum leap" in corrosion resistance. ChromeXL® is the product that we then developed and trademarked to bring corrosion resistance to a higher level.
Simply stated, the ChromeXL® product we now offer is the most corrosion resistant chrome plated bar available in the market. One thousand hours of ASTM B117 neutral salt spray testing and correlating C.A.S.S. test ratings confirm our claims about the corrosion resistance of ChromeXL®
Is it ideal for every application? Absolutely not! We don't believe any chrome plated bar is a commodity. But we welcome the opportunity to discuss the end use applications for ChromeXL® with you. ChromeXL® answers your concerns about nitride rod metallurgy, and filled your need for better cylinder performance, right now! We are your "go-to" source for corrosion resistance information and we're here to answer your questions. Call on us!
