New MIL-STD-1501F titled “Chromium Plating, Low Embrittlement, Electrodeposition” has just been released. The 15-page document replaces the MIL-STD-1501E, which is now obsolete.
This standard covers the engineering requirements for electrodeposition of hard chromium on high strength steel substrates and the properties of deposit. Subsequent heat treating techniques needed to insure low hydrogen embrittlement of steel are also described.
Chromium plated to this standard will meet the performance requirements of SAE AMS-2460, which supersedes SAE AMS-QQ-C-320. This standard may be used whenever SAE-AMS-QQ-C-320 is specified.
MIL-STD-1501 provides guidance for the Air Force repair process, acquisition, and manufacture of parts and/or spare parts on the landing gear of all military aircraft.
