Chromium-plating and Resistance to Corrosion


THE statement made by H. C. H. C. in NATURE of July 2, p. 6, on the subject of the protection afforded by electro-deposited chromium, as mentioned in Mr. U. R. Evans's book, “The Corrosion of Metals”, seems so definite that, in view of the contrary experience of several workers specialising in electro-deposition for the prevention of corrosion, it seems desirable to direct attention to the fact that, so far, preliminary tests have indicated that electro-deposited chromium cannot be looked upon as a reliable protection of iron and steel from corrosion.
