What is Chrome Plated Hollow Bar & chrome plated od tubing?
Chrome plated hollow bar is known as chrome plated OD tubing also, it plays a very crucial role for producing hydraulic cylinder rods and Linear shafts in various machineries. The primary benefit of using a chrome plated hollow bar over a standard chrome plated bar is that it significantly reduces the weight of the hydraulic piston rod in the design of safety hydraulic cylinders.
The production of chrome plated hollow bars involves taking hot rolled or cold drawn seamless tubes, grinding the outer diameter, polishing it, and then electroplating it with a specific thickness of chrome.

Surface condition of chrome plated hollow rods
Our chrome plated hollow rods are chrome plated on outer diameter. The chrome plating thickness can be max to 60 microns. The popular plating thickness is 15 microns, 20 microns, 25 microns, 30 microns, 50 microns, etc. We can make the chrome thickness upon customers’ request.
The chrome thickness of 20 microns and 25 microns are the most commonly requested standard.
The outer diameter is finished to a roughness of between Ra 0.2μm and Ra 0.4μm (8RA to 15RA).
