Preplating high-strength steels with copper to prevent embrittlement during chromium plating: M38-8/63E-PDF

"High-strength steel Types 1062, 4037, and E4340 are severely embrittled when electroplated with chromium by a standard procedure. However, no significant embrittlement occurs when these steels are (a) given a special acid treatment and (b) electroplated with copper in a stable cyanide bath, prior to the chromium plating"--p. [64].
