        Chromium | Raw to Ready: Komatsu

        This clip from Raw to Ready: Komatsu focuses on how the discovery of an ingredient in a piece of crocoite became the base of a variety of colors. Over 50 years of experimenting with electroplating on countless metals led to the discovery of the first viable chromium electroplating method by Collin G. Fink. Chromium's resistance to scratches and corrosion opened the doors to all things chromium, from car bumpers to the smooth steel piston of Komatsu's giant earthmover's rock solid suspension.
