Chrome Plated Shafts


Sheffield Redi-Case is a well balanced Electric Furnace steel that has been stress relieved, turned, ground and polished. It is then induction hardened and electro chromium plated.


Induction Hardened - for excellent wear resistance.

Chrome Plated - .001" per side of uniform chrome plating which is twice the industry standard, less likely to show "pitting" than other chrome plated products.

Abrasion Resistant - offers excellent abrasion resistance in maintenance applications where sliding wear causes premature failure.

Corrosion Resistant - performed well in salt spray tests.

Polished Finish - superior micro finish in the range of 12/15 RMS.

High Fatigue Resistant - combats fatigue failure, the number one cause of shaft failure in most maintenance applications.
