Chrome plated Stainless Steel bars Introduction.

Chrome plated Stainless Steel bars made from AISI 316 Stainless Steel.

Stainless steel, also known as inox, is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass.

Chrome plated stainless steel bars made from this martensitic stainless steel are used in applications working in extreme conditions.

Has one of the higher corrosion resistance from all martensitic stainless steel family.

We recommend A-CHROME BACI 431 for all applications working in a highly stressed environment. It is suitable for applications requiring a combination of corrosion resistance, hardness and toughness. Used in aircraft and marine industry.

A-CHROME BACI 431 Technical Properties.

  • Diameter Tolerance Standard is ISO-f7. We can provide special tolerance at premium price.

  • Residual Magnetism Standard is Max. 50 Gauss. We can provide special magnetism at premium price.

  • Roundness – max ½ from the diameter tolerance.

  • Surface Roughness is Ra = max 0.20 µm.

  • Surface Hardness due to the chrome Layer hardness is minimum 900 HV 0,1.

  • Straightness for ∅≥20[mm] is max 0,2[mm]/1000[mm].

  • Chrome Layer thickness for ∅>20[mm] is minimum 20[µm].

  • Corrosion Resistance results are based on a salt spray tests. These tests are following the ISO 9227 and ISO 10289 standards. The results of these tests are giving the rating of our products.

ASO HYDRAULICS & PNEUMATICS chrome plated stainless steel bars.

Standard Corrosion Resistance is R9/840h according to NSS tests. For reference only.

Weldability of A-CHROME BACI 431 needs preheating and post-welding treatment.

Machinability of A-CHROME BACI 431 is fairly good, but there will be some gall and build up on the cutting edge of the tools.

Packaging A-CHROME products are supplied in 3 different packaging options.

Our Standard packaging is made with plastic sleeves or paper tubes. The type of packaging depends on the product’s diameter.

Special Packaging that is seaworthy protected has an additional cost and is made from aluminum foil or vacuum bags.

As an Extra protection with additional cost we can provide also wooden boxes.

Marking in ASO HYDRAULICS & PNEUMATICS is done in order to have a full trace-ability.

Each bar is marked individually on the plastic/paper tube with info about the date, product series, diameter, tolerance, resistance at saltwater spray test, heat no ,production order and so on. The batch has a label with information regarding: Order no, Item no, Heat no, Steel Grade, total length of the batch, Weight, no of pieces in the batch.
A-CHROME BACI 431 chrome plated stainless steel bars are delivered having the Rod end painted in green with red cross.
