Atotech’s commitment to sustainable technologies

In April 2013, chromium trioxide was added to REACH’s Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) list. After the so-called sunset date, September 21, 2017, the use of chromium trioxide requires authorization.

In response to REACH and because of our commitment to eliminating hazardous chemicals from our product range, Atotech is offering alternatives to hexavalent chromium containing processes, which meet the current technical requirements of the industry.
