The Metal finishing industry has converted finishes from Hexavalent Chrome to Trivalent Chrome because of environmental and European ELV concerns associated with Hexavalent Chrome.


Sharperize® has lead the industry by taking this one step further and eliminating Chrome altogether. This will eliminate the many problems associated with testing for Hexavalent Chrome, the costs incurred for this test, and the potential for Trivalent Chrome to be mistaken for Hexavalent Chrome as finishes age (this is a common problem referred to as 'false positives').

Automotive executives, being so impressed with the corrosion protection, continue to specify Sharperize® to an increasing number of components. With the success of this finish, Sharperize® has licensed applicators to run the Sharperize® process, handling the ever-increasing demand for this finish of the future.
