Blue Grass Plating Co., LLC has been at the forefront of converting to non-hexavalent coatings. In 2005 we worked hand-in-hand with Columbia Chemical to achieve General Motors approved applicator status (GMW3044).
Trivalent Chromates are also referred to as Hexavalent free chromates. These were developed to accommodate the automotive industries environmental initiatives to reduce the level of hexavalent chromium used in automotive production.
Blue Grass Plating's new 90,000 square foot hexavalent-free facility is currently operating 5 days per week to service our growing list of more than 350 customers, which approximately 85% of these customers are in the automotive industry.
