Hard plating

The hardness of plating is higher than that of a metal which is made by the melting method.
Chromium plating, nickel-tungsten alloy plating and electroless nickel plating are listed as a hard plating.
In noble metal, rhodium plating and palladium cobalt alloy plating are listed as hard plating.
Hard plating is often used as a industrial plating, because it has good abrasion resistance. Chromium plating and electroless nickel plating are often used for this purpose. Good point of chromium plating is not only hard but also lubricity. On the other hand, electroless nickel plating is used for precise dimensional products, because it can be plated with the uniform thickness.
