Sustainable Solutions for the Surface Finishing Industry


We have developed an environmentally friendly alternative to prevailing hexavalent chromium (Cr6) to help affected manufacturers and metal surface finishers manage the September 2017 sunset date established by REACH. This alternative replaces Cr6 with trivalent chromium (Cr3) and uses an ionic liquid chemistry developed by the staff scientists at Trion to electroplate both decorative and hard, functional chrome coatings.
