Chromium is an element that adds corrosion resistance, strength, and hardness to metals it is alloyed with and is a key component of specialty alloys, nickel and super alloys. It is mostly used in the production of specialty alloys, nickel and super alloys where low iron is required. In smaller additions, chromium is also added to several aluminum, copper, and titanium alloys.
Chromium containing materials are extensively used within the thermal spray industry to impart barrier coatings with unique characteristics on to metal substrates. In powder or traditional “nugget” form, Reading Alloys’ chrome products provide consistent and reliable properties to final treated components.
Chromium alloys such as 30Al/70Cr and 44Al/56Cr are available for critical coating applications for the aerospace and non-aerospace industries. Through either thermal or plasma spray, or packed powder (CVD processing, Reading Alloys is committed to providing superior quality Cr containing products to these important markets. Our unparalleled experience in alloy design and manufacturing enables us to gain an in-depth understanding of customer specific requirements.
