Abstract : The object of this study was to develop a qualification test for chromium platers and to develop a test for the evaluation of the quality of the chromium plate. It was found that before a qualification test could be developed, a quantitative method for the evaluation of plating adhesion was necessary. The requirements are that the test should be simple, quick, non-destructive to the ordnance materials being tested, and quantitative. Two tests were developed and their results were to be correlated.
