Spec Database


Welcome to the Advanced Plating Technologies’ specification database.  The specification database is an extensive online resource of metal finishing specifications from professional specifications and standards organizations, federal agencies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).  It was designed to be an engineering resource for design engineers, quality personnel and buyers within the manufacturing sector. The APT database can be searched by the following methods:
  1. Search by Specification Number:  The number of a unique specification (e.g. ASTM B488) can be searched within the database to locate an individual specification.
  2. Search by Finish:  A specific finish (e.g. gold plating) can be searched to find a list of available specifications for each finish that Advanced Plating Technologies offers.
  3. Search by organization or company:  A company or organization name can be entered within the database (e.g. ASTM) to provide a list of all specifications contained within the APT database by that organization.

The information provided within the Advanced Plating Technologies’ database is for reference only and is not intended to be a comprehensive summary of any specification’s content.  Rather the database was designed to provide a brief summary of the specification’s subject matter to provide a sound context of the specification’s contents and engineering purpose. Advanced Plating Technologies cannot guarantee that the specifications contained therein are the most current revisions.  In addition, Advanced Plating has no affiliation with any of the organizations, agencies or companies contained within the database.  We hope you find the APT specification database a useful online resource and value any feedback you may have.
