Providing hard chrome plating services to industries nationwide since 1978
Masterson Hard Chrome is dedicated solely to hard chrome plating new, used, and mis-machined parts for the oil and gas, aerospace, lighting, wallboard, dairy, printing and defense industries. Our technicians are highly trained to consistently produce the highest quality chrome finish.
Parts that perform in high friction, corrosive, galling, seizing or high temperature environments increase their productivity and longevity when a chrome coating is applied. By extending the life of your parts and increasing productivity, you SAVE MONEY with chrome plated components.
With the quickest turn around time in the industry and pick-up and delivery service available for the Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio, & Austin areas, Masterson Hard Chrome's service is unprecedented.
Industrial Hard Chrome is one of the most popular coatings used by engineers to improve equipment performance and increase the life of a part. Customers can expect to see longer run times, increased efficiency and lower energy consumption with industrial chrome plated components running in their equipment.
We can repair parts by grinding or honing out the wear, then building up with chrome and finish grinding or honing back to size. This not only saves the end user money, but it’s the most environmentally sensitive solution. This process keeps parts out of the landfill and keeps them working longer and harder. By repairing parts, you can save up to 60% of the cost of new.
Preparing, finishing and repairing parts in our grinding and honing department ensures the best chrome adherence and tight finish tolerances. Our machine shop contains lathes, cylindrical grinders, and vertical and horizontal hones to turn-key your next project. We also welcome hone only projects that do not require chrome plating.
Masterson is partnered with many leading companies to produce large production runs of chrome plated components. We work closely with the engineers and buyers to exceed quality standards and meet delivery requirements. We can provide the communication and consistent delivery you’ve been looking for — You can count on us to deliver.
