Chrome electrolyte - chrome plating with Betzmann Galvanik
Chrome plating by yourself with high-quality chrome electrolyte from Betzmann Galvanik
A layer of chromium protects a wide variety of components from oxidation and corrosion. In addition, the workpiece is given a visually appealing appearance. Our electrolyte is based on chrome(III). While chromium(VI) was originally used in the industrial process, chromium(III) electrolytes are increasingly being used because they have a significantly lower impact on man and nature. This electrolyte contains all our know-how - we were able to make it significantly brighter and more efficient. Current densities up to 20A/dm² can be achieved.
Usually chrome is deposited in the layer system copper - nickel - chrome. The intermediate layer of nickel provides additional protection against corrosion, as chrome layers show microcracks. The chromium itself is usually only deposited in a layer thickness of 0.2 to 0.5µm.
Of course, the chrome electrolyte is suitable for all processes such as bath electroplating and pen plating (or pad plating).
When chromium plating, always wear the necessary protective equipment such as safety goggles, gloves and protective clothing and only work in a well-ventilated room.
The most important advantages at a glance:
is equally suitable for bath electroplating and pen plating / pad plating
high adhesive strength and abrasion resistance
high hardness up to 1200 HV
extremely large current density range
Color of the chrome layer is very similar to the result of hexavalent chrome baths
heating of the electrolyte is not necessary (temperature range 15-50°C, preferably 15-30°C)
high reflection and beautiful gloss
higher permissible metal impurities than with other processes, thus easier to use
To achieve a perfect result with the chrome electrolyte, the appropriate anodes are required for the galvanic process used. Anodes made of aluminum, platinized titanium, platinum or iridium are recommended. For pen plating, graphite, nickel or stainless steel anodes can be used if necessary. With nickel or stainless steel anodes, however, it is important to ensure that the pad is washed out well in between so that the metal contamination that arises does not contaminate the electrolyte and the chromium layer.
Aluminium anodes have proven to be particularly advantageous, they are particularly cost-effective and the electrolyte retains its excellent color. If you do not have any, we recommend that you order them directly from us.
