Almetron develop and manufacture bespoke chemical formulations for a range of specialist sectors including aerospace, automotive, construction, textile, industrial cleaning and agriculture.
New laws from the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) had led to increased regulations around hard-chrome plating (HCP), a process widely used in aerospace and defence.
