Why should the piston rod be chrome plated?
Sep 19, 2017

Why should the piston rod be chrome plated? In a hydraulic cylinder, the piston rod is a necessary connecting part. Because in a hydraulic cylinder, the piston rod can be said to require a number of mechanical properties, and its normal operation will often affect other components. Therefore, for hydraulic cylinder piston rod requirements are relatively high, it must be required to be smooth, corrosion-resistant, and have higher tensile strength. It also has to provide a low friction surface, as it moves back and forth across the hydraulic cylinder, seals, wiper and bearing surfaces. Therefore, in order to meet all these different characteristics and requirements, the piston rod needs to be chrome plated.
