Better Frictional Properties, Oil Retention and Lubricity Equal More Horsepower
U. S. Chrome uses a special oleophilic composite electro coating process known since 1979 as NiCom™. This proprietary oleophilic coating absorbs and retains oil like a sponge, so your bore will never release oil, rust or oxidize. With such a strong affinity for oils, both organic and synthethic. NiCom™ plating provides greater oil retention for increased horsepower.

Our honing process provides you with better cylinder bore geometry and concentricity. Our cylinder bores hold their roundness and straightness better than other cylinder repair facility in the world.
