DURALLOY® is an extremely hard, crack-free, precise, very thin and ultrapure metallic chromium layer. A nodular structured surface can be deposited in the layer thickness range from 1.5 to 20 µm. Due to the low process temperature of under 70 °C no changes to the structure of the base material occur during plating. This essential advantage of the process ensures shape and hardness stability for any manufactured components. DURALLOY® provides effective protection against friction and vibration corrosion and thus increases considerably the wear resistance of the material when used, for example, in gears or with shaft-hub-joints. The nodular structured surface of the DURALLOY® layer provides outstanding chemical resistance and material hardness for applications where conventional coating systems with comparable layer thicknesses are ineffective.
