The sulphidation behaviour of high contraction (HC) and low contraction (LC) chromium plated steel was studied in sulphur with a partial pressure of 1 atm at 1, 3, 5 and 7 h and 0.1 and 0.01 atm at 5 h. The temperature was 600°C throughout the work. It was found that HC and LC chromium plating imparted significant sulphidation resistance to steel. It should be mentioned that by increasing sulphidation time and sulphur partial pressure, the hardness of chromium coating decreased. LC chromium coating had a lower thermal shock resistance than the HC coating. Thus, it was concluded that the HC chromium coating had the better sulphidation resistance.
