General Description:

Chromium as a metallic element was first discovered two hundred years ago, in 1797. But the history of chromium really began several decades before this.

Whilst metal finishing brought shine and brilliance to add to the catalogue of chromium colours, a true vocation came with the invention of stainless steels, for chromium is the ingredient that makes steel stainless.

Chromium is seldom used alone. It is the supreme additive, endowing alloys or materials with new properties : Resistance to corrosion Resistance to wear Resistance to temperature Resistance to decay Strength Hardness Permanence Hygiene Colour
