AMS 2410 Spec
Silver Electroplating

What is AMS 2410 | Silver Electroplating? 

When working with our clients in the Aerospace Engineering and Manufacturing industries there is no margin for error.   

AMS 2410 is the Aerospace industry standard spec for silver electroplating. The specification includes requirements for thickness, temperature, and striking. 

Benefits of AMS 2410 Silver Electroplating 

  • High Lubricity 
  • Anti-Galling Properties 
  • Corrosion Resistance 
  • Abrasion Resistance 
  • Wide Operating Temperature Range
  • Conductivity
  • And more!

AMS 2410 Technical Notes

In accordance with AMS-2410, the customer purchase order MUST contain the following information

  • Any pre-plate stress relief to be performed by AOTCO (time and temperature)

  • Desired plating thickness

  • Basis metal to be plated

  • Tensile strength or hardness of basis metal

  • Unique features, geometry, or processing on parts that requires special attention by AOTCO

This spec typically has a nickel strike between base metal and electrodeposited silver.

Silver plating is typically used to prevent galling and seizing of corrosion resistant steels.

All steel parts having a hardness of 40 HRC and above and which are machined, ground, cold formed or cold straightened shall be cleaned to remove surface contamination and thermally stress relieved before plating for the relief of residual tensile stresses. Residual tensile stresses have been found to be damaging during electrofinishing.

For parts having a hardness of 55 HRC and above, including carburized and induction hardened parts, stress relieve at 275 °F ± 25 °F (135 °C ± 14 °C) for a minimum of 5 hours.

For peened parts: If stress relief temperatures above 375 °F (191 °C) are elected, the stress relief shall be performed prior to peening or the cognizant engineering organization shall be consulted and shall approve the stress relief temperature.

Acceptance Testing

Acceptance test samples shall be randomly selected from all parts in the lot. A lot shall be all parts of the same part number, processed in a continuous series of operations (3.1 through 3.3), in not longer than 24 consecutive hours, and presented for processor’s inspection at one time. Unless the cognizant engineering organization provides a sampling plan, the minimum number of samples shall be as shown in Table 1.

Electroplating

Electroplating

Electroplating is a process by which one metal is deposited onto a base metal (substrate). These deposited metals offer a variety of benefits including thermal and electrical conductivity, corrosion resistance and more. AOTCO electroplates a wide variety of both standard and exotic metals.

Anodizing

Anodizing

Sometimes called a “conversion coating” Anodizing is an electrolytic process in which an oxide (anodic) layer is chemically built on the surface of the substrate material, providing anti-corrosion and other benefits. AOTCO offers, Type I, Type 2, Type 3 and Titanium anodizing services.

Passivation

Passivation

Passivation is a term for a variety if processes that make a metal (most commonly stainless steel) or other substance unreactive, or passive, by altering the surface layer or coating the surface with a thin inert layer. AOTCO performs both citric and black oxide passivation techniques to a range of specifications.
