A Metallic Blue on the Exterior

Exterior parts play a major role in the design process of a new car. They have to meet very specific requirements in terms of performance and optics such as colour. Decorative plating processes from SurTec are perfectly suited for the application on automotive exterior parts, they come in a large variety of aesthetic colours and they are environmentally friendly due to the absence of Chromium(VI) in the electrolytes.

Reliable Partner for Global Megatrends

Battery, hydrogen cell or something completely different? No matter what the vehicle drive system of the future will be, we support you in the successful implementation of future-oriented projects.

The chromium(VI)-free passivation for Aluminium SurTec 650 for example offers outstanding corrosion protection for battery housings in electrical vehicles. SurTec 650 meets various OEM specifications in terms of corrosion protection in the infiltration of seals.

Feather-light Plastic Parts with a High-Quality Metal Look

Whether it's decorative parts in the vehicle interior or manufacturer emblems at the front of a car - SurTec 883 XT transforms decorative plastic components into high-quality design elements.

SurTec 883 XT is the first and only 100% chromium(VI) replacement on the market and convinces in function and colour. The surfaces show identical colour values as chromium(VI)-based coatings. The process is therefore REACh-compliant and can be easily integrated into existing plants.

New Generation for the Pre-treatment of Aluminium Wheels

Aluminium wheels are becoming increasingly popular with car owners all over the world. They convince above all through their extraordinary design. Of course, aluminium wheels must also meet the highest demands of car manufacturers in terms of corrosion and weather resistance. Therefore, SurTec has developed the innovative technology SurTec 644, a process which not only fulfils all quality requirements - even for machine faced wheels - at the highest level, but also offers the wheel manufacturer the possibility to realize significant cost advantages by saving energy in the cleaning step and reducing maintenance efforts in all process steps.

Safety and Appearance Equally Relevant

No car leaves the factory without safety-relevant parts in the vehicle interior, such as seat belt buckles or headrest bars. Besides their function, however, a pure metallic appearance is also important, which is easily achieved by the trivalent chromium plating technology SurTec 883 XT.
