REACH in electroplating

REACH is a great challenge for electroplaters. Processes have to be optimised, electrolytes to be adapted so that you always comply with the current guidelines. But be aware: Who informs oneself too late about possible substance restrictions and prohibitions, and looks only then for alternatives, gets into avoidable turbulences.

As a global company we have all the important environmental and health regulations always in our focus. We act with foresight. You too?

A very important subject for us is e.g. SVHC. We avoid those “Substances of Very High Concern” as far as possible. Please see below a selection of SVHC free products. 

You know as well as we that REACH is a very complex set of rules. Are there any questions? Write to galvano@eu.umicore.com.
