LANASOL® CE - pioneering replacement of chrome dyes since 20 years

Huntsman Textile Effects started with the replacement of chrome (mordant) dyes 20 years ago and stopped production and sales of chrome dyes already in 2008. With the concept of LANASOL CE a trouble free move has been made possible.

Olivenleder® - Sustainable Leather

Olivenleder® - Sustainable Leather

wet-green has developed a vegetable tanning agent for producing beautiful and healthy leather. The tanning agent is a vegetable concentrate based on olive leaf extract. The plant extract is free from metals and any chemically synthetic reactive tanning agents. It not only ensures maximum sustainability and consideration of all ecological aspects but also allows reduction of acids, salts, syntans and dyestuffs as compared to traditional tanning methods.

Green Chrome Technology - Cr (VI) Free - Alternative to Electroplating.

Green Chrome Technology - Cr (VI) Free - Alternative to Electroplating.

Decorative elements and surface engineering are contributing significantly in creating recognition values between brands in automotive industry but also in general engineering applications.

Chrome surfaces in different glossiness grades are applied on polymer substrates for interior and exterior trims. Different technical specifications like corrosion and scratch resistance but also resistance to thermal loads and solar radiation need consideration.

The increasing awareness for human health and environment protection is leading to industrial processes complying with current and coming regulations. Cromatipic® is an environmental friendly and Cr(VI) free technology for plastic metallization. The 2-layer-system (lacquer+PVD) is recognized as alternative for automotive and general engineering applications.

Effective Protection against Wear & Corrosion with the “EHLA Process”

Effective Protection against Wear & Corrosion with the “EHLA Process”

Hard chrome plating, thermal spraying and laser material deposition are ways of protecting components against corrosion and wear. However, all these processes have significant drawbacks. For example, as of September 2017, hard chrome plating using chromium(VI) will require special authorization. The new extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition process, developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and RWTH Aachen University and known by its German acronym EHLA, eliminates these drawbacks in an effective and economical way.

Eco-friendly chrome plating based on nanotechnologies

Eco-friendly chrome plating based on nanotechnologies

PVD CROMATIPIC plasma coating allows for production of extremely thin eco-efficient coatings with particular physical and mechanical characteristics such as corrosion proof.

The PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) process is based on nanotechnologies and allows for the elimination of heavy metals, such as chromium and its derivatives, in wastewater and processing as well as in water saving and the reduction of harmful gas emissions.

The innovative PVD chromium plating system uses plasma technology and is highly eco-friendly as it does not use toxic chemicals.

SUPERCHROME PVD COATING – a green alternative to hexavalent chrome plating

SUPERCHROME PVD COATING – a green alternative to hexavalent chrome plating

SUPERCHROME PVD COATING provides a chrome finish with a decorative character for plastic substrates. Hexavalent chromium is not used in this process. SUPERCHROME PVD COATING is a two-layer coating consisting of a UV cured base coat and a chromium PVD layer on top. Unlike conventional PVD coatings, SUPERCHROME PVD COATING requires no protective top-coat to interfere with the chrome finish. jobaTEC /VTI provides the SUPERCHROME PVD COATING process and system technology.
