Abstract Scope Faraday will discuss recent research on the development of functional REACH compliant trivalent chromium plating process to replace hard hexavalent chromium plating. Hexavalent chromium plating has been used for many years to provide hard, durable coatings with excellent wear and corrosion resistance properties. However, hexavalent chromium baths have come under increasing scrutiny due to the toxic nature of the bath, effects on the environment, and workers’ health. Faraday has demonstrated that the prepared chrome coatings have equivalent functional properties to the coatings produced with a hexavalent chromium bath. In this paper, Faraday will present results from its development program and discuss the similarities between chrome deposits from the REACH compliant and hexavalent chemistries. Specifically, Faraday will discuss the effect of processing conditions on microstructure, in-situ stress development, wear resistance, and performance as well as evaluating its potential for a hexavalent chromium free plating shop.
