Micro-chrome plating involves micro-cracked chromium layers that are deposited from a mixed-acid chromium electrolyte.
The micro-cracked chromium layers are characterized by a finely woven network of cracks. The micro-chrome layers have good resistance to corrosion at high chrome layer hardness. The micro-chrome layers can be deposited in variable thicknesses up to about 500µ. We recommend 25µ as minimum layer thickness.
