Chromium Exposure Testing

Chromium comes in two forms: chromium III and chromium IV – the latter being much more toxic.

Although it occurs naturally in the environment like other heavy metals, too much chromium can be harmful to your health, especially your respiratory system.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), chromium is used:

  • mainly for making steel and other alloys
  • for chrome plating, the manufacture of dyes and pigments, leather and wood preservation, and treatment of cooling tower water
  • smaller amounts are used in drilling muds, textiles, and toner for copying machines

Chromium toxicity is a serious health issue that could cause harmful effects. To schedule your Chromium Exposure Testing, contact Test Smartly Labs.
