As emissions regulations lead to an increase in engine exhaust temperatures and the

resulting discoloration of chrome finishes, Lincoln Industries’ NeverBlue technology provides an effective solution to both meet emission regulations and prevent the “bluing” of highly cosmetic chrome. The NeverBlue technology is a combination of processes that prevents chrome finishes from discoloring at high temperatures. It is currently being used by Lincoln Industries’ OEM and

aftermarket customers for the heavy-duty truck market. While NeverBlue is currently used only in the truck market, it is being evaluated for other applications and is in early testing stages with some of the company’s existing customers. The first technology of its kind, it will continue to rapidly expand into other areas at Lincoln Industries.
