With 25 years of expertise, recognised as a leader in this field, their novel high-quality technologies continue to evolve with the market. SurTec 883 XT is the original proprietary formulation achieving identical colour values to standard chromium (VI) and hence perfectly suited for automotive applications, where exact colour matches are required. In addition, the SurTec 88X-family covers a comprehensive palette of aesthetically appealing chrome colours ranging from blue bright to deep dark. SurTec 650 in combination with a gasket optimally prevents corrosive seal creep age of moisture into a battery compartment and ensures low electrical contact resistance. The technology also provides electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and is hence the perfect solution for surface treatment of e.g. battery pack housings and Electronic Control Unit (ECU) housings. Due to its best-in-class bare metal corrosion protection, additional e-coating applications of the battery housing could be considered redundant.
