Alternative for Lead Anodes in Chrome Electroplating



Looking for experience or referrals to an alternative anode or process for hard chrome plating of mild steel? 
 
Currently, a dual-catalyst system is used, with lead anodes (over 90% lead).
 
Are there other anodes that might work in this application?  apparently Titanium anodes contains fluoride, which may not work for this process?  Is anyone using vapor deposition for this application or similar application?
 
Thanks in advance.
