Abstract : Summary: Top level strategy in place to systematically address Cr6+ in metal finishing (and painting). Alternatives partially implemented by FRCs, fleet and OEMs based on business cases: incremental transition planned to continue, each user/location has different drivers due to mix of local/state/federal regulations and laws. Heavy focus on spray applied products and coatings removed during maintenance due to higher exposure risks from mists and dusts. R&D ongoing and focused on improved coatings: Improved corrosion properties for all, Additional Class N, Type II primers, 1-hr re-coat for high solids primers.
