RAC and SEAC have finalized their opinion for the future of Hexavalent Chromium usage in Plating on Plastics applications

unknown 5

Next step in the progress on Applications for REACH Authorization of Several Uses of Chromium Trioxide – RAC and SEAC Draft Opinions

In June the committees RAC (Risk Assessment) and SEAC (Socio-Economic Analysis) submitted their draft opinion for the future usage of hexavalent Chrome to ECHA.

As a next step RAC and SEAC have finalized their opinion. Further editing is expected over the next weeks before publication, but there will be no substantial changes. The review periods adopted remain as previously drafted:

Uses group 3 (decorative plating), 5 (miscellaneous surface treatment) and 6 (ETP): 4 years.

The files will now be forwarded to the European Commission for decision-making, probably early 2017.


COVENTYA’s SILKEN BOND technology, a complete chrome free pre plate process will be released soon and therefore SILKEN BOND will be commercial available. 

The latest innovation of SILKEN BOND is the possibility to plate bi-injected parts with excellent selectivity.

As already stated, parts processed with the SILKEN BOND process have already been submitted to numerous automotive OEMs for various testing including adhesion tests by thermal shock and peel tests. All of the test requirements have been met and this has led to several OEM approvals having been written and issued to COVENTYA.

The planning for new POP plating lines for different industry segments are already well advanced and the start-up of these operations are planed by the end of 2017.

It is exciting to see the future of Non-Chrome POP plating has just begun and will unveil its full potential in the years to come. For more information contact your local COVENTYA partner.
