With TriChrome® Graphite, Atotech introduces the latest generation of Cr(III)-based finishes, providing a unique warm dark appearance.
TriChrome® Graphite layers can be combined with bright or satin finishes. They are remarkably even and allow for a whole new palette of novel modern, contemporary designs in the range of increasingly popular dark finishes. It is therefore suitable for applications in the automotive, electronic goods, sanitary and furniture industry.
TriChrome® Graphite is CaCl2 resistant and provides excellent CASS performance, especially if combined with microporous nickel (MPS) or TriSeal®. Like any other deposit plated from Atotech's TriChrome® electrolytes, TriChrome® Graphite is operating at high plating speed and shows superior throwing power. The stable and sustainable plating process does not discard dangerous mists or contaminations. That is what makes it an environmentally responsible alternative to hexavalent chromium plating.
