The Challenge

Corrosion costs the economy trillions of dollars every year, and despite being highly effective, the EU has recently banned the use of Hexavalent Chromate due to its toxic and carcinogenic nature. Coatings companies are now looking for a safe, cost-effective alternative that delivers the
results of chromate inhibitors.

The Solution

Hexigone embarked on the challenge of finding a chrome-free replacement. The team moved their research away from mainstream thinking and explored smart-release vehicles that can hold onto chemicals that were previously incompatible with coatings. The result? A safer, smarter way to protect against corrosion.
