Session 3: Advances in Research ‎

Abstract Number:

47

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. ‎

Topics:

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.‎
