Household and fittings

Simple measuring solutions for chrome coating systems on complex plastic parts.

In the household sector, a wide variety of chrome fittings are used in kitchens and bathrooms. These are often complexly designed plastic components, such as shower heads or taps, which are coated with chrome coating systems such as Cr/Ni/Cu for decorative and functional surface finishing.

In order to save unnecessary material costs and also to comply with the current legal directives on the conversion from chromium(VI) to chromium(III) compounds, the thickness of these chrome coatings and their chromium content are closely monitored. Fischer has developed measuring solutions that provide quick and easy results for quality control and are particularly suitable for complex component shapes.
