test for chrome after stripping operation

test for chrome after stripping operation

test for chrome after stripping operation

We have chromium stripped from some components for rework. Is there a test to determine if all the chromium has been removed?


RE: test for chrome after stripping operation

Did I say something wrong? This is not my field so maybe there is no test. Anybody ??? hello ??? am I alone in here ??? ponder

RE: test for chrome after stripping operation

What is the substrate?

RE: test for chrome after stripping operation

52100 (bearing steel) HRc 58-62

RE: test for chrome after stripping operation

Um. That is an alloy with about 1.5% Chromium content by design, not sure you will be able to "strip" it of chrome without dissolving the part in acid, at which point the part is gone...


RE: test for chrome after stripping operation

A copper sulfate solution is commonly used to show presence or absence of plating after a stripping operation on ferrous substrates. In the absence of plating, the copper sulfate will "plate out" copper on the substrate. The copper can then be removed after the test with house hold ammonia
