Every year we invest more than 10% of turnover on the research and development of new technologies and processes, environmental sustainability, continuous computer updating of our production and management systems and automation, allowing us to be continuously at the forefront in the main markets.
New finish: Esclusive Galvanic Treatment
An exclusive finish which allows you to create an embossed effect (on relief) on a smooth piece through the application of an ADDITIVE DEVELOPED BY CROMOPLASTICA which receives galvanic treatment.
Here is an example of how the plastic piece (1st stage) is first treated with the application of the exclusive additive (2nd stage) and finally galvanized (3rd stage), by moving the sliders you can see the different images.
In 2017 we also received approval of additional 2 very important certifications regarding Environmental & Safety Management System which, to tell the truth, were already successfully present and used in our company, following rules ISO 14001:2015 e OHSAS 18001:2007
Selective treatment 2.0
We are already capable of treating certain parts of an object, but on one condition: the surface not to be electroplated must be made from a plastic that is not ABS, Bayblend or polypropylene. In future, this will no longer be necessary because we’ll take care of everything, at a lower cost to the customer.
Thanks to selective 2.0 selective treatment, that we have developed and provide exclusively, we will be able to autonomously limit the electroplating deposit to certain areas, with the ability to create logos and graphics in an infinite range of colours.

Elimination of hexavalent chromium
Our electroplating treatments respect the environment and the health of people. That is why we will replace hexavalent chromium, considered highly toxic, with trivalent chromium: at first in the aggression phase and then in the finish phase.
Investment in the automotive industry
The automotive market is increasingly using electroplating treatment, since it is the only finishing process capable of providing the highest level of aesthetic and technical results, as well as complying with the strict specifications and requirements of automobile manufacturers. In the coming years, we intend to invest in this industry and increase our presence in this market.
Raw material storage
We have a large warehouse, equal to 1,000 euro pallets, and place it at the complete disposal of our customers for large quantities to be processed and for the creation of safety stocks, which allow the reduction of lead times and production costs.
We will develop an infinite range of colour
Part of the investments relate to research in the creation of new colours: so far we have managed 41, but we will soon be adding more. Our goal, as always, is to create an infinite range of colours.
Gold and gold purple plus colours
The latest two colours we have developed are available in shiny, satin and velour variations. However, our commitment to creating new colours continues every day…
If our customers have objects with particular reliefs, thanks to our electroplating touch, we are capable of maintaining the characteristics of any surface, enhancing its special and sophisticated forms.
