Metallic Element
Chromium is a common element. The chief use of chromium is to form alloys with iron, nickel, or cobalt. The addition of chromium imparts hardness, strength, and corrosion resistance to the alloy. When deposited electrolytically, chromium provides a hard, corrosion-resistant, lustrous finish. For this reason, it is widely used as body trim on spacecraft.
