What is AMS 2404?

At AOTCO we comply with a wide range of specs and standards to ensure that we are providing our customers with a range of highly specialized industries with the exact procedural requirements they request. These specs, along with a thorough purchase order, help us fully understand what is expected of us and our suppliers. For our Electroless Nickel process, one of those specs is AMS 2404.

AMS 2404 is the aerospace engineering standard for electroless nickel plating. The spec highlights four classes (1-4) and three grades (A, B, and C).

NOTE: AMS 2404 supersedes the AMS-C-26074 spec.
