RoHS Plating for a New Century
"RoHS" stands for the restriction of certain hazardous substances. This directive has banned the release on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than the allowed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated biphenyl (PBBs), and polychlorinated diphenyl (PCBs).
Erie Plating Company offers RoHS-compliant plating for many of our processes including chromate (we offer trivalent chromate conversion plating as a safe alternative to hexavalent chromate), passivation, zinc plating, anodizing, nickel chrome plating, tin plating, and more.
Protecting our Environment
It is our mission to provide metal finishing in an a safe and environmentally responsible manner.
Erie Plating Company is proud of its continuing dedication to pollution control and environmental awareness for the benefit of our associates and community. Erie Plating Company is committed to not only meet, but exceed the standards set forth by local, state and federal governments for all Environmental Health and Safety standards.
We are committed to the safe handling and disposal of all materials, which includes recycling, reclaiming, and segregating wastes from general landfills. Our processes are carefully engineered to minimize waste and ensure low impact to our environment.
Erie Plating Company’s Industrial Pretreatment System is designed to treat over 100,000 gallons of water per day and remove heavy metal contamination below federal standards. Our chemists and technicians have completed the “Treatment of Metals Wastestreams” program offered by California State University, Sacramento.
In recent years, Erie Plating Company has invested in exhaust systems and pollution control devices that anticipate new lower standards. These investments will ensure clean air quality for our associates and our community for years to come.
Along with our state-of-the-art engineering controls, our technicians are trained in 40 hours of Hazardous Waste and Operations Response. We have established working relationships with our Local Emergency Planning Committees and Municipalities for risk management planning. Our goal is to not just meet, but also exceed all regulatory requirements, and to remain environmentally responsible for our employees, our customers and our community.
