  • Passivates: trivalent chromium and hexavalent chromium with several colors ( blue, yellow, black, transparent)
  • Self-healing top-coats  

Functional application

It is possible to improve the weldability, conductivity, ductility, hardness, abrasion qualities of the substrate. We have several technology to change the behavior of the metal:
