Session 3: Advances in Research
Job Shop owners and operators want to transition away from hexavalent chrome from a safety standpoint for their people, as well as to ensure the insurability of their operations.
Facing health, insurance and regulatory challenges, Job Shop owners and their management teams weigh the risks of keeping the hex process running. Increasing risks will lead to considering and learning about the benefits of a new technology like SAFE Chrome.
Advances in Surface Finishing Technology
Trion Coatings has developed an electrochemical coating process called SAFE Chrome®. This process replaces toxic and carcinogenic hexavalent chromium with an environmentally friendly and SAFE alternative. SAFE Chrome improves the wear resistance, hardness, and corrosion resistance of steel substrates and expands their performance and range of application. Job Shops seeking hexavalent chrome replacement have had limited options prior to the launch of SAFE Chrome. This presentation will provide a real world case study that details the operational ease of transition and cost benefits associated with transition from hexavalent chromium to SAFE Chrome adoption.
