The TK11 - Chromium-6 Detection Test Kit


This test kit can be used to detect the presence of chromium-6 on various surfaces, such as paint layers and metals.

Old paint coatings may contain chromium-6 to protect the metal from corroding. The test kit is therefore often used to test if old layers of paint can be safely sanded or ground. Heated metals, often in combination with anti-seize agents, frequently contain chromium-6 on the surface. The test kit is therefore often used for testing heated components in gas turbines, wind turbines, engines, etc.
