There are a  wide variety of surfaces and applications involved in the plating industry.  The metallic coating standards are the basis of good practice in this field.

Coating are used to provide corrosion resistance, wear resistance, lubrication, anti-galling qualities, non-stick properties and color.  You'll use these standards to provide guidance both for the purchaser and the supplier when adding surfaces to products.
