Applicator Approvals

Columbia Chemical's Approved Applicators

Our plating processes and chemistries that are approved or used to meet OEM specifications need to be applied by electroplating companies (applicators) that have demonstrated a commitment to quality and process control. These approved applicators have successfully completed a quarterly C.A.R. audit conducted by Columbia Chemical and verification testing for the coating performance requirements of the specification itself.

A list of Approved Applicators is shown below along with the specifications that they are approved for.
