Chromium carbide coating applications that require smooth surface finishes must be ground with diamond abrasives. Industrial Plating has cylindrical grinding
and surface finishing
capabilities and expertise to meet your requirements.
These are just a small sample of the coatings that we offer. Additional materials with different performance properties are available to meet the specific needs of your application.
We have over 50 years of experience applying plating and coating on a vast range of industrial machinery and equipment. Contact Industrial Plating Company
