What's Next? CHEMEON TCP-HF has been shown to produce an anodize seal that is as good or better than conventional sodium dichromate and dilute chrome seals. Sealing with TCP-HF eliminates hexavalent chromium in the air and reduces energy consumption. Discussions are in process with MFASC, SCAQMD, and aerospace Primes about the advantages of TCP-HF. About CHEMEON CHEMEON Surface Technology is a Woman Owned Small Business that is licensed by the United States Navy to manufacture the MIL-SPEC and QPL/QPD approved CHEMEON TCP-HF, a replacement for hexavalent chromium. CHEMEON's current focus is the direct replacement of the hexavalent based sodium dichromate seals with the high performance seal CHEMEON TCP-HF. If you are an OEM, Prime Contractor or a plating shop in the US or abroad and are interested in learning more about CHEMEON as a direct replacement to sodium dichromate and dilute chrome seals visit www. or contact the chemists and subject matter experts at CHEMEON Technical Support at 888.782.8324 Acknowledgements A special thank you to CHEMEON Research Scientist Jake Cruson for the use of his preliminary data on the performance of Type II anodize with TCP-HF seal. BIOS FOR DR. WESTRE AND MR. ESTES Dr. Sjon Westre Vice President, Technology, CHEMEON – Dr. Westre heads CHEMEON's development of environmentally responsible coating and seal alternatives to hexavalent chrome for use on light metals and leads the Laboratory, R&D and Tech Center divisions at CHEMEON. Dr. Westre received his Ph.D. in Physical chemistry from The University of California at Davis and a BS degree in Chemistry with a Physics minor from Cal State, Sacramento. Dr. Westre has published numerous technical papers in the fields of Molecular Physics and Analytical Chemistry. He is credited for the creation of CHEMEON's training program "Anodizing Best Practices and Troubleshooting." He also lectured at technical conferences as well as acted as an instructor for undergraduates at UCD. Byron Estes, Vice President Global Solutions for CHEMEON is a hands-on, results-oriented leader driving sales/marketing programs and strategies for Global Suppliers and Domestic/ International Manufacturers and Metal Finishers. His management experience in plant operations, production, inventory control, quality assurance, technical sales and training in the manufacturing and metal finishing job- shop sectors spans five decades. Mr. Estes has taught plant operations including production, quality assurance, tooling and manufacturing sales, and has led the CHEMEON technical courses in Aluminum Anodizing, Trivalent Chromate Conversion and Titanium Anodizing. 1.
