US Chrome has been in the precision plating business since 1946.. We were the first company in the world to successfully electroplate onto aluminum substrates. US Chrome began electroplating aluminum powersport cylinder bores in 1979, and since that time we have plated well over 1,000,000 cylinder bores.
With a full time Quality Engineer, Ph-D chemist, and custom German-Engineered diamond honing tools, we offer the most consistently diamond hard cylinder coatings with the roundest and straightest bores, available anywhere in the world. Our cylinder bores are bulletproof and race-proven since 1979. Under the most demanding conditions, with sufficient lubrication, NiCom plating will never streak, scuff or "stripe"; and our piston skirt coatings are super-slick and durable, offering extended piston life and less friction than any other on the market!
US Chrome is endorsed by high performance legends such as Mercury Marine Racing, GM/Corvette Racing, RK Tek, Craig Marchbank, John Wilmer / Sled Head Racing, Pat Hauck Yamaha, Mike Follmer PWC, HTG Racing, Russ Lemke Ent. and Mike Wienandt Racing, among thousands of others! But our reputation speaks for itself; Ask around and you will find that no other cylinder plating company compares with our experience, technical depth and business integrity. We offer the highest quality product, quickly, and we treat our customers with the respect they deserve. With over 16,000 satisfied dealers, power-sports racers, engineers, power-sports riders and eBay customers worldwide in our active customer network, it is easy to see why others try to imitate, but can never duplicate, the U.S. Chrome business and technology models.
