Plating Specifications - Are They Realistic? 660068
Specifications for plated exterior trim for automobiles are based on knowledge of corrosion behavior of nickel-chromium systems in service. The CASS and Corrodkote tests are tools for measuring this behavior in a realistic manner. Corrosion cannot be eliminated, but it can be controlled to permit satisfactory performance. Conformance to the specifications is necessary to maintain customer acceptance of plated decorative trim.
