Featured Product from Plansee SE
You can rely on our quality. We produce our chromium products ourselves - from the metal powder right through to the finished product. As our input material, we use only the purest chromium powder. This ensures that you benefit from a very high level of material purity.
Excellent Wear Resistance. Beautiful Optics.
Given its unique properties, it comes as no surprise that our chromium is used for some very special industrial applications, for example as a coating material in a variety of processes:
As a chromium nitride hard material coating applied to moving parts, the material provides reliable protection against wear and abrasion. In addition, chromium gives brilliance and sheen to watches and fittings of all types. At the same time, chromium protects against corrosion.
Pure Chromium - or Maybe an Alloy?
We prepare our chromium to perform perfectly in every application. We can determine the following properties through the addition of various alloys:
-Physical properties (e.g. melting point, vapor pressure, density, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, heat capacity)
-Mechanical properties (e.g. strength, fracture behavior, ductility)
-Chemical properties (e.g. corrosion resistance, etchability)
-Workability (e.g. machining, formability, weldability)
-Structure and recrystallization properties (e.g. recrystallization temperature, proneness to embrittlement, aging effects, grain size)
