Air General Permits - Chromium Electroplaters

Chromium plating and anodizing operations coat metal parts and tools with a thin layer of chromium to protect them from corrosion and wear.

Electroplating is the process of applying a metallic coating to an article by passing an electric current through an electrolyte in contact with the article to form a surface having properties different from those of the article.

The essential components of an electroplating process are an electrode to be plated, a second electrode to complete the circuit, an electrolyte containing the metal ions to be deposited on a direct source, and a direct current source.

An optional Chromium Electroplaters Air General Permit Example Worksheet [Fill-able PDF - 174 kb] is available.  Chromium electroplaters are eligible to operate in Florida under the terms of an air general permit pursuant to the requirements of the applicable Florida Rule 62-210.310(5)(i) F.A.C

Effective June 29, 2011 all Air General Permits will have a $100 registration fee. The duration of the registration is for 5 years.

Please send your air general permit registration and the $100.00 processing fee payable to FDEP:
