Inspection of Ground, Chromium Plated Steel Parts
|Publication Date:||1 August 2000|
This specification covers the requirements, procedures, and accept/reject criteria for inspecting ground chromium plated surfaces for grinder-induced damage to the chromium plate and substructure.
This procedure has been typically used for nondestructive testing of heat treated, high strength, 180 ksi (1240 MPa) or higher tensile strength, low-alloy steel parts which have been chromium plated and subsequently ground, but usage is not limited to such applications.
1.2.1 It is possible to have areas of overheated chromium plate without damage to the substrate. Overheating sufficient to damage the substrate will be exhibited by indications in the ground chromium plated surface.
