Seminar - Alternative coatings and treatments to replace hard chrome
The Interreg project Alt Ctrl Trans was launched in 2019 and aims to develop and promote feasible and efficient alternatives to hard chrome plating for the transport and processing industry, to meet their real needs.
In addition to the presentation of some of the results of the project, including the presentation of a website that aims to guide companies in the choice of an alternative to hard hexavalent chromium, industrial cases where alternative coatings or treatments have been successfully applied will also be presented.

The ALT CTRL TRANS project, with the support of Interreg France-Wallonie-Vlaanderen and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), proposes to develop on pilot scale the implementation of one or more alternatives for hard chrome plating (and the current trivalent chrome plating methods), based on metal coating, and to promote this for the transportation sector and metal transformation.
