American Elements offers chromium plates in a wide range of thicknesses. Chromium is used in thin film Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) processes for applications such as fuel cells, solar energy and more. Chromium has a high melting point and boiling point making it a good choice for high temperature applications. Plates can be provided unfinished or finished to your specifications including cutting, machining and welding.
The lustrous finish that makes chrome so familiar to car enthusiasts comes from a combination of alloys, the most important of which is chromium. This metal, with a rating of 8.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, is one of the hardest substances on earth, only outclassed by titanium and boron. In addition to its strength, chromium is highly corrosion resistant.
Stainless steels contain large amounts of chromium and offer resistance to corrosion and oxidation. Ferritic grades contain straight chromium with no nickel alloying, while the austenitic grade family offers superior strength and hardness along with high ductility and resistance to stress corrosion cracking.
Alloy 410, commonly known as 12% chromium martensitic stainless steel, is a general purpose grade that has a high corrosion resistance. This grade is resistant to atmospheric conditions and water, as well as diluted acids such as acetic acid, naptha and nitric acid. It is also resistant to abrasive conditions and moderate impact.
