Number of grams of hazardous hexavalent Chromium Cr(VI) (a man-made valence state of chromium used in hard chrome electroplating) that has been removed from the aerospace industry because of ES3’s work developing, installing, operating, and supporting chrome replacement technologies.
Number of grams of toxic Cadmium that has been removed from the aerospace industry because of ES3’s work developing, installing, operating, and supporting Zn-Ni plating as a non-toxic alternative to cadmium.
ES3 is committed to reducing the environmental impact of aviation. Our advances in coatings, electroplating, stripping, and dimensional restoration are reducing the hazardous waste of production processing while also reducing the hazardous exposure of aerospace industry workers, aviation maintenance crews, and the communities that support aerospace operations and production.
