This SAE Standard specifies the requirements for the electro-deposition of silver on ferrous-base, copper-base, aluminum-base, zinc-base and nickel base materials. It is primarily intended for use on electrical and electronic items which are to be plated with silver to increase the electrical conductivity of the surface. This Standard does not cover the silver plating of threaded items.
RATIONALE AMS03-9A stabilizes this document because this document contains mature technology that is not expected to change and thus no further revisions are anticipated. STABILIZED NOTICE AMS03-9A has been declared "STABILIZED" by SAE AMS Finishes Processes and Fluids Committee B. This document will no longer be updated and may no longer represent standard industry practice. Users of this document should refer any certification issues (e.g., exceptions listed on the certification report) to the cognizant engineering organization for their disposition. NOTE: In many cases the purchaser may be a sub tier supplier and not the cognizant engineering organization. AMS Committee B recommends that the following similar (e.g., properties, fit, form, function) specifications be considered for future procurement. This listing does not constitute authority to substitute these specifications for the "STABILIZED" specification.
