Chrome plating is also known as chromium plating and is a technique for applying a thin layer of chromium onto a metal or plastic object. The platting occurs by dipping the object into tanks full of chromium. The chrome layer may be applied for decorative means, to prevent corrosion, to ease in cleaning or to make the surface hard. Other plating operations, such as nickel plating or anodized metal plating also fall under this category.
A permit is required for any operation subject to the Air Toxic Control Measure for Chromium Plating and Chromic Acid Anodizing Facilities (ATCM).
A permit is required for all operations subject to NESHAP 40 CFR 63 WWWWWW (Plating and Polishing Facilities)that is a source of hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions.
