Galvanic Corrosion between trivalent chrome plated parts and stainless steel




Looking at the Galvanic corrosion tables, it appears that Galvanic corrosion is likely to occur between passivated 316 stainless steel and mild steel. We add trivalent chrome plating to the 1010 steel - does this reduce the chance of corrosion occurring at all?

Hello, Gina. There isn't enough info here. Is the 1010 completely encapsulated with chrome plating, or only partially plated? The passivation film on both stainless steel and chrome plating will help quite a bit. But exposure conditions are very important.
