Sol-gel technology as chromium substitute

EPG is working with a nano-chemical alternative to chromium substitution based on sol-gel technology: the product Nanoseal is used particularly in the automotive sector. The surface finishing achieves the good decorative properties and wear resistance of chrome plating and can be applied to all metals and common product surfaces such as stainless steel or PVD. The coatings are applied in a very thin layer in an automated process and then hardened in a furnace. On highly polished surfaces, a transparent coating then appears chrome-plated to the observer. The sol-gel coating has very high temperature resistance (up to 550 °C) and resistance to corrosion (CASS: up to 96 hours). It can also be applied in colour, making it possible to apply deep black coatings, for example.
