A new generation decorative process having novell catalyst system.

The bath is very highly active and hence produce excellent chrome coverage.

Have a wide operating temperature range. Can be operated from 35 – 50 °C.

Produces pleasing blue coloured deposit.

Higher current efficiency.

Suitable for plating on ABS and sanitary fittings.
