For over 50 years it has been at the forefront of research and development of new and improved finishes for diesel engine applications. The first cylinder liners were re-engineered by Chromium Corporation using CRODON lining during World War II in a joint effort with the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Army Air Corps. Since then, Chromium Corporation has developed a wide range of CRODON lined, cast iron and steel finishes for power cylinder bores that constitute the largest portion of its business.
