1.1 This practice is intended to serve as a process guide (not as a standard procedure) for producing adherent electrodeposits of chromium on chromium for engineering use.
1.2 Only well-known, generally practical methods using hexavalent chromium plating baths have been included. Some of the newer proprietary chromium plating processes produce chromium plating for which this process is unsuitable. Suppliers of the processes should be consulted.
1.3 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. 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 .
