Identical Colour Values as established Chromium(VI) Processes

SurTec 883 XT produces aesthetic surfaces, which - measured with Konica Minolta CM-700d - show identical colour values as conventional chromium(VI) processes. With the innovative SurTec 883 XT, SurTec has developed the world's first and only 100% chromium(VI) replacement.

Comparison Cr(VI) to SurTec 883 XT

Mix of Chromium(VI) and Chromium(III) Parts Possible

Due to the identical colour values a mixed installation of chromium(VI) and SurTec 883 XT surfaces is possible without any problems. This feature not only makes SurTec 883 XT the ideal replacement technology for processes containing chromium(VI), but also allows a stepwise change from chromium(VI) to chromium(III).
