Abstract
A HIGH EFFICIENCY PLATING BATH WITH CHROMIUM PRESENT IN THE TRIVALENT STATE ONLY HAS BEEN DEVELOPED IN THE LABORATORY INFOR HARD CHROME PLATING. THIS PROCESS WILL BE TESTED ON AN INDUSTRIAL SCALE TO DETERMINE ITS ACCEPTABILITY FOR PLATING AND ITS EFFECTIVENESS IN ELIMINATING HEXAVALENT CHROMIUM FROM SOLID CHROMIUM PLATING WASTES. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THIS RESEARCH WILL LEAD TO A VIABLE TRIVALENT CHROMIUM BATH FOR HARD CHROME PLATING. BECAUSE OFOF THE IMPROVED PROPERTIES FOR THE DEPOSITS AND THE ENVIRON-MENTAL ADVANTAGES, THIS PROCESS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO REPLACEALL EXISTING HARD CHROME PLATING PROCESSES.
