The Periodic Element Guys present a 99.99% Pure Chromium Crystalline Grains.
Using a technique called electroplating, a thin layer of chromium can coat metal and plastic objects, including car parts and household appliances, to give a shiny, attractive finish. For example, automotive designers use chrome rims and wheels to spruce up their cars. Chrome plating is not only used for looks; because the chromium forms a protective oxide layer on the surface, chrome-plated objects resist corrosion, according to Krebs.
Stainless steel is an alloy of iron and at least 10.5 percent chromium. It is highly resistant to corrosion. It is used in kitchen cutlery, appliances and cookware such as stainless-steel pans and skillets.
About 90 percent of leather is chrome tanned, according to Emsley. During this process, chromium sulfate is used to treat animal skin and turn it into leather that is resistant to hot water that can cause degradation.
Kilns and furnaces use bricks made of chromite ore, which retains strength at high temperatures. The textile industry uses chromium ions to help adhere dyes to fabric. Chromium's high melting point, moderate thermal expansion and crystalline structure stability make it suitable for these purposes.
