Faraday Technology, Inc.: Functional Chrome Coatings Electrodeposited from a Trivalent Chromium Plating Electrolyte
Chrome plating in many high-performance uses, such as some aircraft parts, still requires hexavalent chromium, a carcinogen, to achieve the necessary performance. Various chrome-free replacements have limitations that preclude widespread adoption. Faraday has developed a plating process that allows high-performance chrome coatings to be made from the less toxic trivalent chromium. This nearly drop-in replacement can reduce millions of pounds of hexavalent chromium without comprising performance.
