Magnaplate HCR®

Give Aluminum Parts a Higher Level of Hardness and Corrosion Resistance

Magnaplate HCR maximizes corrosion protection for aluminum and most aluminum alloys. This surface treatment combines the hardness of aluminum oxide ceramic with the sealing action of metallics and proprietary polymers, giving aluminum surfaces previously unattainable levels of hardness, corrosion resistance and permanent lubricity.

Magnaplate HCR can surpass hard anodizing’s corrosion resistance performance while also exhibiting outstanding salt spray resistance. NASA tests of shuttle parts even show that parts coated to a thickness of 51 microns “should provide superior corrosion protection for a prolonged period of time.” And, Magnaplate HCR gives aluminum parts a harder-than-steel surface up to Rc 48.

Thanks to these proven characteristics, you can now choose aluminum over more expensive substrates like ferrous alloys. Magnaplate HCR is desirable for demanding applications like injection molding, aerospace, semiconductor, printing, pharmaceutical packaging, ordnance and medical.
