Columbia Chemical’s TriCOL trivalent chromium electroplating processes are chloride-based for faster plating speed over sulfate-based electrolyte processes. According to the company, this minimizes costs for converting existing hexavalent chromium plating lines, which would also need to accommodate the slower plating speed of a sulfate-based tri-chrome process.

The TriCOL Décor process for white tri-chrome plating and TriCOL BlackJack process for black tri-chrome plating offer high throwing power for enhanced metal distribution across the entire current density plating range. In addition to complying with REACH, these systems eliminate the burning and high waste-treatment costs commonly associated with hex-chrome plating baths, the company says.
