Chromium VI Ban from 1st January 2019

Chromium VI ban in 2019

Sorry to disappoint but this has nothing to do with Brexit but what story would be complete without the B word. Chromium VI is a miracle additive in the painting of trailers - it slows corroisions and helps the paint stick to the prepared chassis - it is also cheap. But because it kills the world and causes marine creatures to turn turtle it is banned from use in paints from January 2019. So manufacturers paint warranties will change - your 5 year warranties will soon be 2! Just thought you would like to know.
