Kromoss’ Path to Sustainability: Elimination of Hexavalent Chromium from the Pre-Treatment of Aluminium Bars and Sheets Alessia Venturi ipcm®

Kromoss, one of Italy’s largest and longer-standing specialists in the coating of aluminium profiles, has successfully replaced traditional chromate conversion coating with a trivalent chromium-based cycle thanks to an exclusive partnership with SurTec Italia. By doing so, Kromoss has managed to retain excellent anti-corrosion performance but at the same time has solved many problems, including those related to bath management and waste water treatment.
