Satin chrome plating (Cr6+ free process)

At MFF we use trivalent chrome, this gives several advantages instead of hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) which are environmentally dangerous and carcinogenic, so the use of hexavalent chromium have already been banned in several different industries.

Advantages of trivalent chrome at MFF are:

  • Significant improvement for the environment.
  • Improvement of the internal working environment.
  • Minimal risk for lack of coverage of nickel with chromium, which previously has appeared with exposed nickel / yellowish areas.
  • We still meet the requirements of the standard for layer thicknesses.
  • No visual color differences compared to the previously produced parts at MFF.
  • The process is best available technique (BAT) in the field.
