Plating, Electroless Nickel
- Aerospace Material Specification
This specification covers the engineering requirements for electroless nickel deposited on various materials.
This deposit has been used typically to provide a uniform build-up on intricate shapes, to improve wear and/or corrosion resistance, or to improve solderability on or for selected materials, but usage is not limited to such applications. The deposit has been used in service up to 1000 degrees F (540 degrees C) although wear and/or corrosion resistance may degrade as service temperature increases.
Data Sets - Support Documents
The committee of Finishes, Processes, and Fluids, AMS Committee B, shall prepare, coordinate, and revise documents related to processing technology, such as plating, brazing, coatings and compounds, through the participation of process suppliers, users, and interested government agencies. Committee activities shall provide a forum for the cooperative interchange of ideas and experience of the participants, resulting in the publication of specifications that embody sound, established aerospace industry practices and requirements to serve the suppliers and customers of aerospace processes.
