Usage especially in chrome plating equipment for rotogravure cylinders with good electrolyte revolution. ANTI-SMOG is an additive to decrease the fumes of the chrometank while it is plating. It has no negative influence to the chrome quality itself.

ANTI-SMOG prevents contamination of the chrome plating equipment, and its wetting agent effect eases the the cylinder rinse process. ANTI-SMOG provides for clean exhaust air and relieves the chrome separator as well as existing exhaust-wash out units (less chrome deposits in the drain water). It is possible to reduce the exhaust amount, depending on the exhaust system when using ANTI-SMOG. ANTI-SMOG also has a positive influence to the clean air environment in the chrome plating department.
