Ecological Chrome

BIOCHROME® is an exclusive Olivari finish that protects the environment.

In 2005, Olivari's Research and Development Department develops a unique method for chrome-plating brass ecologically. Unlike the traditional manufacturing process, the BIOCHROME® covering uses trivalent chrome instead of the common hexavalent chrome, harmful to both health and the environment.

Our BIOCHROME® finish is suitable for green architecture and anywhere a low environmental impact product is required.

Laboratory tests have shown that the greater thickness and uniformity of the BIOCHROME® plating over traditional chrome-plating guarantee great resistance to wear and tear and tarnishing.

Biochrome-plated products are recognizable because they have been laser hallmarked with the BIO logo.

Every single handle can be traced because it provides the lot number and date of manufacture.
