Everything you need to know about Chromium+3 and Chromium+6

The plating that makes the chrome parts is pretty and exceptionally durable, but did you know that...?


The chrome finish on any part for use in the home or in automobiles is not harmless. It is done by using a compound called Chrome+6 that is harmful to health and to the environment.


For years, the environmental and safety measures imposed by NA (and backed by law) have mitigated its harmful effects, but the misuse of Chrome+6 and its dumping can pollute...

News image What was new at Sicam 2021?
New handles for 2022

Our first trade fair after two years allayed our fears that attendance would be limited due to visitors’ reticence to travel and to deal with health regulations that are logical, although uncomfortable, for everyone.


Not only did we have a record of visitors at our stand, but the reception of the nine newest releases on display for the first time was simply sensational.  And, this year, we had new additions in every possible category of handle!


For zinc alloys, all...

News image They designed your kitchen

The design of contemporary kitchens would not be the same without these two great designers, Christine Frederick and Margarete Shütte. In the first third of the 20th century, they laid the foundations for their current design

Anti-Covid 19 handles don’t exist and whoever says otherwise is lying


 


We’ve witnessed a proliferation of household objects, items and articles that – based on people’s fears – many companies have rushed to launch this year.


News image Ms.Clara talks about paint finish in handles

We all know how delicate paint finish is on furniture handles.


Unlike chrome-plating and anodized coating that work really well, paint is more delicate and it is more likely to get damaged in adverse situations.


However, it is impossible to rule out paint finishes, especially with the infinite range of colours available and it adapts to any requirement (in fact, we have dozens of colours created exclusively for some of our...

News image The cheapest handles

Production that is based on cheap labour costs, which favours the lack of fundamental human rights, and in a highly polluting industry where cheap furniture handles and accessories are made, of course.


We are well aware of it. In fact, Navarro Azorín had part of its production process in China for a while. During that period of time, having seen the idiosyncrasy of these production systems and the gradual fall in the...

Keep reading this article and get the clues you need to really do well with the design of your furniture this year.

In an era that is branded by technology, Big Data, the increase in solitude, the environmental problems, it should now be the time to look for the personal authenticity and truth to ask ourselves: what change can I make as a person that will have a positive effect on my life, my family and my work? And, by extension, in society as a whole?

News image Art-nouveau, art-deco, vintage and retro handles

Any handle that “looks old” isn’t necessarily a “classic”. Indeed, we often use this term for many different styles and trends, even though they are enormously different from each other and were developed in different periods in history, in Architecture, Painting and Decorative Arts.


The Art-Nouveau style (this was called Modernism in Spain), was an artistic trend at the end of the 19th century and the...

What is zamak?


As a professional, we are sure that you have used the word zamak on many occasions (just like we have) to talk about the raw material that many of our handles are made of, but…do you know what zamak is really made of?


ZAMAK is not a metal, strange as it may seem, but rather an alloy whose name is a German acronym of the components that it is made of
