Analysis of a chromium oxide protective layer

Industrialists from all sectors who want to analyze a protective chromium oxide layer on their materials

What is chromium oxide?

Chromium oxide is a chemical compound composed of oxygen and chromium, used in many industrial applications such as the production of pigments, ceramics, glass, cements and stainless steel. It is also used as a catalyst in chemical reactions and as an additive in lubricants.

What is a chromium oxide protective coating?

Chromium oxide is commonly used as a surface coating on metals (stainless steel, aluminum, titanium) to provide corrosion and wear resistance. Chromium oxide can also be used on other materials such as ceramics and glass to give them enhanced resistance to scratches, impact and chemicals.
