AMS 2451C, “Plating, Brush, General Requirements,” has just been released for public distribution. The new edition replaces AMS 245B from May, 2006.
This specification and its supplementary detail specifications establish the requirements for electrodeposition of metals by brush plating. This process is typically used to improve surface properties such as corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and brazeability or to repair damaged, worn, or mismachined parts.
The applicable supplementary specifications for AMS 2451 are:
AMS 2451/1 A, Plating, Brush, Nickel, General Purpose
AMS 2451/2 A, Plating, Brush, Nickel, Low Stress, Hard Deposit
AMS 2451/3 A, Plating, Brush, Nickel, Low Stress, Low-Hardness Deposit
AMS 2451/4 B, Plating, Brush, Cadmium, Corrosion Protective, Low Hydrogen Embrittlement
AMS 2451/5 A, Plating, Brush, Chromium, Hard Deposit, Trivalent
AMS 2451/6 A, Plating, Brush, Copper, General Purpose
AMS 2451/7 A, Plating, Brush, Nickel, Low Stress, Medium-Hardness Deposit
AMS 2451/8 A, Plating, Brush, Non-Cyanide Silver, General Purpose
AMS 2451/9 A, Plating, Brush, Zinc-Nickel, Low Hydrogen Embrittlement
AMS 2451/10 A, Plating, Brush, Tin-Zinc, Low Hydrogen Embrittlement
AMS 2451/11 A, Plating, Brush, Cobalt
AMS 2451/12, Plating, Brush, Tin
AMS 2451/13, Plating, Brush, Silver
These detail specification sheets are to be used in conjunction with the AMS 2451 itself. As part of the five year review of these documents, the specification sheets have been reaffirmed (confirmed current) this year.
