Subjecthex chrome

 I'm writing to share my opinion regarding the hexavalent chrome
ban. Trivalent chrome does not have all the same properties as hex
chrome. Color is one. The sulfate process has a better color, but
you don't get the corrosion protection. the chloride process can
resemble stainless steel in color. It is very important to our
customer base that the color is right. We will lose customers. They
will go to Az, Texas and Mexico first. I've already had the
conversation with several of them.
I too wanting to protect the environment like everyone else, but
this doesn't make sense to me.  It seems to me that all were doing
is exporting the process to another state or country. We have spent
over $100,00 dollars to control our emissions here and were a small
company.  I did not mind doing that and it really made a
difference.  Our Chrome emissions with the use of a Hepa filter are
extremely low. I truly believe we will lose half if not more of our
customers if this happens. We have been in business 62 years with
many employees that have been here 35 to 50 years. Everyone has
been health too.

Thank you for your consideration.

Carl Troncale, President
