Re: New Guidance Available on Hexavalent Chromium

[color="DarkSlateBlue"]OSHA announced the availability of a new guidance document this month to help small businesses comply with requirements of the agency's new hexavalent chromium standard. Small Entity Compliance Guide for the Hexavalent Chromium Standards describes steps employers are required to take to protect employees from hazards associated with exposure to the compound. Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL), exposure determination, respiratory protection and personal protective equipment, are just some of the topics included in the guide.

Re: New Guidance Available on Hexavalent Chromium

Dear member
Many thanks to see the OSHAS NEW ANNOUNCEMENT ON HEXAVALENT.
We have been doing Hard Chrome plating of valves for engine valves as a vendor.Recently Cummins USA has instructed us to Hard Chrome plate the cummins engine valve in trivalent chrome (exported to US from India) and not on hexavalent from 2007.I wish to know whether trivalent chrome plating salt has already come into market? Is there a method by which a chrome plated valve can show the presence of hexavalent in the lab?I will be happy to get further information on this
Thanking You

Dear Member

I am Rajesh from Bangalore India.

We also have a state of art plating plant located at Doddaballapur Bangalore, complying to the RoHS, Euro standards. The facility offers the following services :

Bright Nickel, Trivalent chrome plating
Electroless Nickel plating
Blackening 
Nickel Teflon coating (PTFE)
Trivalent Chrome is the next generation chrome plating process, which is both environment friendly and RoHS compliant.

Decorative Trivalent Chrome Plating Applications include Automotive Components, Jewellery Decorative, Home Appliances, Hardware, Hand Tools, Plastic Knobs, and Telecom accessories.

The plant is fully automatic, remote controlled, closed loop plant, backed up by auto dosing of chemicals. A well-equipped effluent treatment plant also backs it up.

The awareness for Trivalent Chrome is extremely less in India.  Iwish to know if there are any members who would be interested in our Plating Facility
