IHI Hauzer Techno Coating in The Netherlands announced that it has acquired the intellectual property rights and trade marks for Cromatipic, formerly owned by Sidasa Engineering in Spain.

Cromatipic is an environmentally friendly technology that replaces electroplating on varied plastic substrates and future aluminium alloys for many applications. The technology uses only two process steps, where electroplating needs many more. With the technology a flexible chrome layer is applied that needs no top coat. The end result passes all common automotive requirements for automotive interior and exterior parts. The technology has already been proven and delivered in combination with the inline production platform the Metalliner.

IHI Hauzer Techno Coating belongs to the IHI Group, which has headquarters in Japan, and is a leading supplier of Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) technology and equipment for the tool, tribological and decorative markets worldwide. Cromatipic is a worthwhile addition to Hauzer’s portfolio that will serve existing and new customers, especially in the automotive market.
