Products Motor valve, metal
The valve resists high temperatures (about 1000 C) as well as high pressure, and has furthermore good wear resitance. The length of the valve is about 10 cm.

It is placed in the explosion chamber of a car engine where it opens and closes for exhaust gases up to 2500 times a minute.

Hard-chromium improves hardness and reduce friction of the steel substrate, beside providing corrosion and wear resistance.
