Enthone’s Trilyte Flash CL is an environmentally friendly, trivalent chromium plating process that deposits a bright decorative chromium layer over bright or satin nickel deposits. The process is resistant to attack from calcium chloride containing salts, provides good metal distribution and reduces the potential for high-current-density burning and whitewash effects common to conventional hexavalent systems.

When used in conjunction with multilayer nickel systems, the process’s deposits pass CASS and Russian Mud tests. According to the company, the process also performs well when applied as part of an Elpelyt satin or bright nickel and Durni microporous noble nickel plating system.

The process remains stable over time, even when operated infrequently, resulting in fewer treatments and additive adjustments, as well as consistent color reproduction. Its use of graphite anodes avoids the high startup and maintenance costs associated with MOX (iridium alloy) anodes.

The company says that this plating process enables its customers to meet local environmental requirements as well as stringent automotive, building and hardware industry requirements.
