“California Air Resources Board (CARB) Regulatory Deadlines are Very Aggressive and Unrealistic.”

The California Air Resources Board has proposed to phase out Decorative Hex Chrome by 2023, Hard Chrome by 2027 and Chromic Acid Anodize by 2032.


California Metal Finishers will no longer be able to provide this vital service to our industry. Over one hundred thousand jobs could be lost and the surface finishing industry could exit California in the coming years. This ban is not needed. Technology has allowed us to reduce emissions by over 99%. The surface finishing industry in California is less than half of 1% of hex chrome emissions yet is the only industry facing a ban.


We are asking that you please consider contributing to our IEF Fund to help in our efforts to save the surface finishing industry in California. Your contribution is deductible on 501C Rules. Below is a link to a downloadable donation form or a link to donate online if you would like to contribute. All money raised will go to fighting this massive regulatory overreach by CARB.


Join our efforts, contribute, and spread the word about the attack on metal and surface finishing in California. Download the Surface Finishing Flyer below to email, print, and share.
