Q2 Artificial Lift Services' hard chrome plating process uses a proprietary high-speed hexavalent formula with important advantages over conventional hard chrome plating. This process also incorporates a travelling anode system that results in superior chrome plate adhesion and even deposition over the length of the barrel.

Wear resistance, Low co-efficient of friction, Corrosion resistance. This leading edge process provides a high micro crack density. The micro cracks are shorter, shallower and are not continuous from substrate to surface. Effective porosity is reduced to less than 15% from greater than 25% for conventional hard chromes.

As a result, Q2 Artificial Lift Services' hard chrome plate has increased corrosion resistance, a low coefficient of friction, and higher hardness, 70 HRC typical, enabling it to perform well in conditions where conventional chrome plated products are not typically recommended.
