A uniform coating for ferrous metals. Mostly a decorative coating. Only very limited corrosion protection under mild corrosion conditions. No dimensional change.
AMS-2485H ELECTROLESS NICKEL
For moving parts which cannot tolerate the dimensional change of a more corrosion-resistant finish. For decorative applications and can be used to decrease light reflection. Alkaline oxidizing. For wrought iron, cast and malleable irons, plain carbon and low-alloy steel. Use when hard and smooth surfaces are required on coated parts. Excellent uniform deposits are produced on irregular parts. Coated parts, such as used in air compressors, missile fuel injector parts, pumps, reciprocating surfaces, etc.. Are protected from oxidation, corrosion and wear. With aluminum electronic devices, not only is product contamination prevented, but the coated parts facilitate soldering. Coated parts of stainless steel similarly facilitate brazing. Availiable Electroless Nickel Low Phosphorous Electroless Nickel (1 - 4%) 58-62 RCH, compressively stressed, excellent wear resistant, melting point 1200 C and recommended for Alkaline Environment. Medium Phosphorous Electroless Nickel (5 - 9%) heat treatable to 62 RCH, bright appearance, excellent lubricity and recommended for Acid and Alkaline Environment. High Phosphorous Electroless Nickel (10 - 13%) is nonmagnetic, ductile, readily soldered and recommended for the most severe Acid Environment.

CHEMICAL CONVERSION COATING MIL-DTL-5541F
Materials qualified under MIL-DTL-81706 produce coatings that range in color from clear to iridescent yellow or brown. Inspection difficulties may arise with clear coatings because visual inspection does not reveal the presence of a coating. Type 1 Hexvalent Chromate Type II ROHS, Hex, Free Chromate
Class 1 A
Class 1A chemical conversion coatings are intended to provide corrosion prevention when left unpainted as well as to improve adhesion of paint finish systems on aluminum and aluminum alloys. May be used on tanks, tubings, and component structures where paint finishes are not required for the exterior surfaces but are required for the interior surfaces. Class 3 chemical conversion coatings are intended for use as corrosion preventive film for electrical and electronic applications where lower resistant contacts, relative Class 1A coatings, and anodic coatings with Mil-A-8625, are required. The primary difference between a Class 1A and Class 3 coating is thickness. Iridescent yellow or clear per blueprint or customer requirements
Intended to improve the corrosion resistance of parts made from austenitic, ferritic and martensitic corrosion-resistant series of the 200, 300, and 400 series and precipitation hardened corrosion-resistant steels. 440C grades may be exempt from passivation treatments at the discretion of the procuring activity.
