In September 2020 MacDermid Enthone presented Electro Chemical Finishing with our DecoKlad license. We are very pleased to announce that we are now an authorized chrome plating applicator for MacDermid Enthone Fashion Finishes®.
What Is DecoKlad?
MacDermid Enthone is the world’s leading supplier of plating chemistries to the automotive industry. In order to ensure that the highest quality finishes MacDermid Enthone offers to automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers can be produced globally in a consistent manner, the company certifies applicators through a stringent plating-focused quality and process control certification program. DecoKlad is that program – a unique, proprietary quality performance system with different performance levels for interior and exterior automotive parts.
ECF’s DecoKlad Certification
ECF’s management team worked closely with the MEIS DecoKlad team to achieve the distinction of being one of only three applicators certified in North America. We are the first and only plating-on-plastic (POP) finisher in the Americas to partner with MacDermid Enthone in this way. By combining our fully automated systems with MacDermid Enthone’s chemistries and DecoKlad quality program, we can ensure the performance-based consistency that OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers demand.
MacDermid Enthone’s Decorative Business Development and Product Manager for the Americas, Chrissy Pullara stated: “ECF’s recent approval into the DecoKlad program exemplifies their commitment to providing remarkable quality to the surface finishing supply chain. Electro Chemical Finishing proves that ‘Quality is More than Decorative’ by consistently providing and pioneering advanced finishes with excellent performance and exceptional beauty.”
Electro Chemical Finishing has the capability to plate hexavalent and trivalent chromium finishes, including Bright, Pearlescent Satin, and Twilite® and Starlite® dark chrome, on both metal and plastic substrates.
