TURI founded and manages a consortium of leading companies in the aerospace and defense industry to find safer alternatives to hexavalent chromium. This higher hazardous substance is used for corrosion protection in various coating applications such as bond primers, sealants and conversion coatings.

The consortium has identified and tested the performance of safer substances with positive results including passing industry performance standards for bond primers, sealants and conversion coatings. See the results in the published articles on the right.
