LDC-HTC3 Chrome

LDC-HTC3 Chrome is a first trivalent chrome that produces longer lasting deposits, increased solution life, improves parts wearability and is environmentally friendly. LDC-HTCChrome is the only brush plating solution that can produce a hard chrome deposit thicker than .0005 inches.

LDC-HTC3 Chrome Advantage

LDC-HTC3 Chrome solutions can be used with your existing brush plating power pac tools, can be used to plate on site, and can repair existing plating.

LDC-HTC3 Chrome does not contain or produce hexavalent chrome.   This reduces costs and difficulties associated with the disposal of hexavalent waste.
