Abstract

Most decorative chromium coatings have been applied using hexavalent and trivalent plating processes that are based on chromic anhydride. This article provides a discussion on chromium electrodeposits and their use as microdiscontinuous coating for corrosion protection. It focuses on the operating conditions of various chromium plating parameters: bath composition, temperature, voltage, anode materials, and current density. These parameters need to be considered for obtaining high quality decorative chromium coatings. An overview of plating problems encountered in chromium plating and their corrections is also provided.
