Is September The End For Hard Chrome?

B&B Coatings have heard rumours since last year that Hard Chrome Plating may be banned in 2017. Several Credible sources have told us that there will be an announcement in February and that September would be the sunset date for the process. We are currently in contact with ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency to get clarification as to whether this is true, and will be keeping you in touch as more details emerge. This may be a good time to start evaluating an alternative for your component. One natural replacement for Hard Chrome would be Tungsten Carbide applied through the HVOF process. Here's a side by side comparison of the two processes.
