With the Sharperize® Process the customers have many different options to fit their requirements. The processes involve proprietary electrodeposited zinc nickel plating followed by a series of secondary sealers. Depending on the specific requirements, these sealers can protect parts from UV rays, increase or decrease coefficients of friction along with providing outstanding corrosion protection.

From Hexavalent Chrome to Trivalent Chrome to No Chrome, Sharperize® is the thinnest, most corrosion resistant coating available.


As of July 1st 2006 the automotive industry no longer permits hexavalent chrome parts on their vehicles. The Sharperize® No Chrome process has been proven to provide well over 1000 hours of salt spray protection and is currently specified by many automotive companies such as Ford, GM and Chrysler.

The Sharperize® No Chrome is available in 3 different colors; Black, Yellow and Clear (silver).
