ASTM B – 18 Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings of Gold for Engineering Uses

For that reason, the electrodeposition of gold is used extensively in electrical component applications such as electrical contacts, connector pins, switches, sensors and many others for which repeated physical contact occurs. Government and Military, including as subcontracts, shall be packaged in accordance with Practice D It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. Any bath that produces v488 meeting the requirements of the speci? In a closed polyethylene bottle, the equilibrated water will remain in the range from 0. Special racks may involve the use of conforming, auxiliary, bipolar electrodes, or nonconducting shields.

The size of the sample and the criteria of compliance are determined by the application of statistics.

Acid pickling of high strength steels shall be avoided. For some applications this requirement may be relaxed to allow for a small number of such defects per unit areaespecially if they are outside or on the periphery of the signi? This is particularly useful in automatic reel-to-reel applications in which dwell times are atm All non-gold metals, excluding potassium and sodium, are considered impurities and shall not be present in amounts greater than 0.

Deposit hardness should be determined on samples at plating conditions representative of actual production. Our extensive quality control measures throughout production include non-destructive testing in accordance with ASTM B to measure the thickness of the coating. Values provided in parentheses are for information only. Such acceptance or pass-fail criteria, if required, shall be part of the product speci? Any such defects on signi?

Government or an agent of the U. Some typical uses of gold coatings are enumerated below, but the list is not complete and is intended for general guidance only. Oxidation of co-deposited metals can make soldering more difficult.


However, care must be taken to ensure that the thickness of the Type I or Type II gold topcoat is sufficient so as not to compromise wear properties. Cracking without separation does not indicate poor adhesion unless the coating can be peeled back with a sharp instrument.

If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.
