GLRPPR Sector Resource: Independent Plating - Trivalent Chromium Plating Conversion
Independent Plating - Trivalent Chromium Plating Conversion
Traditionally, metal finishing relies on the use of a number of toxic chemicals to achieve the performance requirements of its customers. Independent Plating recently converted a nickel plating line to accommodate a new technology that substitutes trivalent chromium for hexavalent chromium, a Higher Hazard Substance. This case study documents the company's decision-making process and the business case for making the change.
