Hard Chrome

ANKOR 1128

ANKOR 1128

ANKOR 1128 is an etch-free process for the rapid deposition of high-quality hard chrome, designed for equipment operating at current densities of up to 300 A/dm² (3000 ASF), typically with conforming anodes and current efficiencies of up to 31%. 

Deposit hardness

ANKOR 1128 deposits exhibit an as-plated-hardness of at least 1000 HV 0.1, which provides high resistance to wear. A smooth coating with a high crack count facilitates corrosion protection of up to 240h per ISO 9227 NSS testing. 


This process is suitable for use with either lead or platinum-plated titanium-conforming anodes, making it a more versatile system for facilities with specialized requirements.
