Chrome plated tube: General Introduction
The chrome plated tubing is also commonly referred to as chrome plated hollow bar and is an important material for the production of hydraulic piston rods. The chrome plated outer diameter provides a lightweight option for the design of safe hydraulic cylinders. The popularity of chrome plated OD tubes in the field of hydraulic cylinder manufacturing highlights its importance.
Chrome plated tubes also are known as hollow chrome rods, are manufactured from cold-drawn seamless tubes or hollow bars. The outside diameter of the tube is chrome-plated to a specific thickness after undergoes grinding and precision polishing. So in the USA, these tubes are commonly referred to as chrome-plated OD tubing. The use of chrome-plated tubes in hydraulic piston rods helps to reduce weight and is widely used in the manufacture of hydraulic cylinders.
Chrome plated OD tubing: Detailed Product Descriptions
Materials of our chrome plated tubes
Our chrome plated steel tubes are made from the finest quality carbon steel, either in the form of cold drawn seamless tubes or hollow bars. The available steel grades include St 52.3, St37.4, E355, SAE 1020, SAE 1026, SAE 4041, and SAE 1045.
|Steel Grade||Chemical Composition %|
|ST 52.3||0.14 – 0.18||1.20 – 1.40||0.15 – 0.30||0.020 max||0.010 max|
|SAE 1045||0.43 – 0.50||0.60 – 0.90||–||0.040 Max||0.050 Max|
|CK 45||0.42 – 0.50||0.50 – 0.80||0.40 Max||0.035 Max||0.035 Max|
|SAE 1020||0.15 – 0.20||0.30 – 0.60||–||0.035 Max||0.035 Max|
Besides the above materials, we also produce SAE 4140 chrome plated steel tube for high performance and high strength applications.

|Steel Grade||Mechanical Properties|
|Yield Strength||Tensile Strength||Elongation||Hardness|
|SAE 1045||75000 psi / 517 Mpa||85000 psi / 585Mpa||10%||Rc 60-72|
|CK 45||75000 psi / 517 Mpa||85000 psi / 585Mpa||10%||Rc 60-72|
|ST 52.3||75000 psi / 517 Mpa||85000 psi / 585Mpa||15%||B-80|
|SAE 1020||60000 psi /414 Mpa||70000 psi /517Mpa||10%||B-75|
|SAE 4140||800 Mpa /115K psi||900 Mpa /130K psi||20%||270 HB|
In addition to chrome plated od tubing, there is also chrome plated inner diameter tubing (chrome plated ID tube). This is created by chrome plating the inner diameter of honed tubing to a specific thickness.
