    Gardobond C 4749 passivation technology is approved by Qualicoat No A 090 and might be the right option for some companies who want to get rid of their chrome VI process and rely on a more eco friendly but stable and high efficient process This nontoxic technology provides similar performance results as hexavalent chromium with regard to paint adhesion and corrosion protection as well as bare corrosion on unpainted aluminium surfaces but with a lower environmental impact The main disadvantage of yellow and green chromating lies in the toxicity of the metal salts used According to the GHS Regulation the chromium concentrates used are classified as acutely toxic hazardous for the environment corrosive oxidizing and may cause breathing difficulties Over and above this chromium containing baths exhibit an acute aquatic toxicity This toxicity is mainly related to the highly toxic hexavalent chromium Trivalent chromium processes such as Gardobond C 4749 however do not contain any hexavalent chromium Therefore the subject of hexavalent chromium does not affect the user or end customer No changes required for new technology Chemetall s new chrome III technology does not require any major plant or process sequence modifications Prior to coating with Gardobond C 4749 all metal surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned with an alkaline cleaner and etched pickled or desmutted As a full system supplier Chemetall offers a complete range of cleaning technologies such as Gardoclean and Gardacid for this Easy analysis and simplified wastewater treatment The Gardobond C 4749 bath can be easily controlled by measuring the pH value with a fluoride resistant pH electrode and by titration The technology produces a colorless to iridescent visible layer which means that a simple visual check can be carried out Additionally the pretreatment layer can also be quickly measured using an X ray fluorescence XRF gun Gardobond C 4749 allows for a more simplified wastewater treatment compared to hexavalent chromium as the reduction of chrome VI to chrome III is obsolete The new technology is also free of cobalt nickel organic complexing agents nitrite and phosphates and meets the requirements of the RoHS Directive 2002 95 EC and the WEEE Directive 2002 96 EC Chrome free for the better Besides its new trivalent chromium technology Chemetall is focused on introducing completely chrome free technologies to the aluminium construction industry With Gardobond X 4707 and Oxsilan AL 0510 the company offers established processes that have been in use around the world at customer plants for many years Gardobond X 4707 is based on zirconium and titanium as coating components and shows excellent results in all common tests AASS CASS or Filiform Even under the harshest outdoor conditions such as the ten years GSB Natural Weathering Test Hoek van Holland a coastal area in the Netherlands the test panels prepared with Gardobond X 4707 could rival chromated equivalents A totally new approach was made with Chemetall s Oxsilan technology which is suitable for use in multi metal applications In addition to zirconium silanes form the basis of
