Chroming Process

In recent years, automotive OEMs have made efforts to replace hexavalent chromium finishes with more eco-friendly finishes. As a result we have invested in a FULLY Cr [VI] free plating process also known as Cr [III] or tri-valent.

Trivalent chromium is another method of decorative chrome plating, and it is the environmentally friendly alternative to hexavalent chromium, with many of the same characteristics. Trivalent chromium plating uses chromium sulfate or chromium chloride as its main ingredient, instead of chromium trioxide; making trivalent chromium less toxic than hexavalent chromium.

There are very few platers in the world with this Cr [VI] free technology, as you would expect APT is one of these few.
