Advanced Plating Technologies, a Milwaukee, Wisconsin company, is an industry leading provider of passivation of stainless steel to ASTM A, AMS AMS-QQ-P QQ-P Passivation of Corrosion Resistant Steels. RATIONALE. AMSE is issued to incorporate all changes approved by AMS Committee. ASTM F86 for Orthopedic implants, AMS for aerospace, ASTM A It is relatively easy to modify a passivation process to satisfy ASTM A [link is to.

We will check for issues with solution entrapment and other design concerns.

We design our own parts, and do our own passivation in house, and hence prefer the testing paasivation of ASTM A May 15 — 16, Boston, MA. Do you have any experience in passivating parts unlike in the AMS suggestions? The AMS passivation specification pertains to metal passivation services like those performed at Able Electropolishing. From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: A discussion started in but continuing through Q.

ASTM A – Passivate – Passivation – AMS – QQ-PC – ASTM A | Santa Clara Plating

ASTM F86 [link by ed. As a global organization of engineers and other technical experts, SAE International provides consensus-formed standards that help define the best practices for processing aerospace, automotive and commercial vehicle components—including metal passivation services.

FebAnaheim, CA. In reading ASTM A and AMS it seems that there is quite a bit of overlap but with differences in the bath variables or verification requirements.


AMS Passivation Standards | Corrosion Resistance Improvement

Since you’re considering an AMS spec, I assume you have aerospace customers. I replied that the parameters are in compliance with standard A but he’s telling that we don’t have objective evidence to support the validation since A defines minimum requirements that could be insufficient to my process. QQ-PB contained six nitric acid bath Types. Precision Passivatiom Technology Show. All The specifications are the same, then why are the Names different? It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an passivaiton via these pages.

In the ASTM A and the nitric acid concentrations mentioned must be percentage by volume of a reagent of 67 wt. John Wilt [returning] – 270, Massachusetts. To me this means volume percent of pure nitric acid, resulting in significantly stronger passivation solutions than AMS Many OEM passivation specifications are derived from these guiding documents.

Is there any clear direction or is it optional? Is one better than another for medical devices? November 7, A. F86 refers to surgical implants of any metallic alloy, and basically just says “do whatever treatment is applicable and appropriate to ensure corrosion resistance”.

This is actually an oversight of A that will be corrected in the next revision. If the part passes the verification test, what differences in function can occur in the part’s use if differing acid baths are used?

Hello, we’ve sent many parts to our different passivation vendors and keep getting parts that are “Flash attacked” or etched. Is this a correct assessment? I really appreciate your collaboration. AeroDef April 30 – May 1 Gain access to the technologies and people in aerospace and defense manufacturing.


April 12, A. But again, please describe your situation. November 27, — this entry appended to this thread by editor in lieu of spawning a duplicative thread A.

Method 1 is subdivided into 8 Types corresponding paswivation the types in old QQ-P while Method 2 is not subdivided. Created with Webvanta CMS. But our favorite choice would be Type 8. It appears that the types are associated with method 1, not method 2. He passed away May 14, AMS considers different parts, or the same part made at different times, to be different lots with the exception for parts with the legacy QQ-P called out, when you can use the older definition.

AMS 2700 Method 1 Type II Passivation for Medical Device

AMS exempts C from testing. Gain access to the technologies and people in aerospace and defense manufacturing. One of the differences is in the definition of ‘a lot’ for testing purposes. Do the parameters in A cover any worst case scenario? In reading through the specification I believe the drawing as incorrect. We are quoting passivation of a medical device manufactured from H stainless steel.

This auditor you are dealing with, what organization is he with? Have the plater do so, and then certify to multiple standards.
