Oerlikon Balzers ePD: Reach-compliant Chrome look for plastic parts
“embedded PVD for Design parts” denotes an environmentally friendly and future-oriented coating procedure free from Chromium III & VI.
Whenever high-end metallic surfaces on plastic parts are requested, ePD™ is the clean alternative compared to today’s electro plating technologies. No harmful agents such as chromium III and chromium VI or other heavy metals are used in the process. As a result, the coating is completely REACH-conform both in production and disposal. The technology is especially renowned for its environmental neutrality and its extended functionalities in a variety of industries among them the automotive industry, the furniture industry and even the sanitary industry.
