To: CARB 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
