TriCOL Reclaim

Innovation has arrived in Decorative Trivalent Plating with the introduction of Columbia Chemical’s TriCOL Reclaim®. The cost difference between hexavalent and trivalent chrome plating has always been a stumbling block for plating shops wanting to make the switch.  Cost savings of 40-60% over traditional trivalent systems is compelling enough for shops wanting to switch, but CASS at >60 hours, High Chloride Corrosion at >336 hours, NO post-dip, 1000+ hours NSS, and L values in the 80s are the performance data points surpassing the competition and driving demand for the new system. This groundbreaking process was designed with a unique formulation to allow for total reclamation without the buildup of counterions. Features a single liquid additive – no more heating, no messy chrome dust powder.
