EVIDENCE BASED RESEARCH SUPPORTS CHROMX®

The strength and durability of our products is important to us. ChromX® performance is supported by a full library of tests, studies and approval reports performed by universities, government agencies and independent research laboratories.

The following information and data presented are accurate to the best of our knowledge and belief and are intended to assist you in selecting the correct ChromX® product for your design. We update this information periodically, so please check back often to learn more. Since many of these studies were written prior to the product line expanding, MMFX2 is often mentioned when referring to the ChromX® 9000 series.

This library includes helpful documents and brochures about ChromX® (ASTM A1035) products and their uses in specific applications.
