The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) is a group of voluntary members who independently test and specify standards for materials, procedures, and their verification and validation. Each year, the ASTM publishes a book of new and/or updated specifications and related information. As with Mil-Spec standards, ASTM specifications benefit us all by ensuring the compatibility of materials and guaranteeing that manufacturing processes meet certain standards so that the end product will be suitable for the environment for which it was designed.
ASTM specifications have streamlined and simplified production by grouping and categorizing products and by letting buyers know what level of performance they can expect from those products.
ENS Technology works to provide platings and surface coatings that meet exacting ASTM standards. ASTM specs we work with include:
- ASTM B733 – Electroless Nickel Plating
- ASTM B700 – Electro-Deposited Silver Plating
- ASTM B488 – Electro-Deposited Gold Plating
- ASTM B545 – Electro-Deposited Tin Plating
- and many others too numerous to list here
If you need platings and surface coatings to meet the ASTM specs of your products, you need ENS Technology. Contact us today to learn more.
