VIBO chrome-plating activities do not involve chrome passivation activi-ties, but rather functional plating procedures with zerovalent chromium, obtained from a bath of hexavalent chromium, in full compliance with national and international directives. As they are plated with chromium in the metallic state, Vibo products therefore do not give rise to leaching which is hazardous for people or to emissions that damage the environment.
Top quality finishing through 5 layers of coatings (matt nickel, acid copper, polished and semi-polished nickel, and chromium), with a guaranteed average deposit thickness of 35 microns. The salt spray tests on Vibo products reveal corrosion rafter 200 hours. The conversion parameter on normal environment is 1 hour: 20 days (more than 10 years).
The production process using robotic islands and high-tech machinery outputs 35,000 kg of metal wire, and steel and aluminium profile daily.
Almost 5000 items (many patented and subjected to a series of tests before sale) are manufactured entirely in VIBO’s own plants and therefore 100% made in Italy.
Available finishes: bright chrome, matt chrome, polished stainless steel, epoxy-coating in several colours, brass and antique copper.
