Hard chrome is characterised by a variety of technical properties that are valued in a wide range of industries and, in combination, cannot currently be replaced by any other technology. Because of the dangers posed by chromium(VI), the surface finishing industry has been looking for an alternative for several years. While chromium(III) technology is already used for decorative purposes, this process has not yet been transferred to functional chromium plating. In a joint research cooperation, COVENTYA and Betz-Chrom have now succeeded in developing a stable pilot process for functional coating with chromium(III). The process delivers reproducible hard chrome coatings of high quality. Our BeGreen Chrome® process deposits a functional hard chrome layer based on trivalent chromium compounds from the electrolyte DURATRI 240. The first customer components have already been successfully coated and are now being tested for their suitability for the corresponding application. We are currently looking for further interested pioneers who want to test a functional chrome plating with chromium(III) on their components. Contact us for a project planning and be part of the chrome plating of a new generation! Properties of Hard Chrome Hard chrome is characterised by high hardness, abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance and very good wear resistance. Hard chromium plating extends the technical properties of components and prolongs their service life. Functional chrome plating is used in particular for wear protection in the aerospace, automotive, hydraulics and various branches of mechanical engineering.
