BluCr is an industrial trivalent chromium hard-chrome plating process designed as a safe alternative to hexavalent hard chrome plating.

Atotech’s BluCr is a trivalent hard-chrome plating process, offering the wear resistance and corrosion protection of hard chrome without the hazards and risks of hexavalent chromium. The process is said to be free of both hex chrome and boric acid, complying with REACH regulations and reducing the potential risks to the environment and users associated with hard-chrome plating. It also uses mixed-metal oxide or graphite-inert anodes instead of toxic lead-alloy anodes. According to the company, this tri-chrome process has the same benefits of its hex-chrome processes, including fast plating speed, high bath stability and high hardness deposits, and wear resistance.
