AP-93 1000 Hour Salt Spray REACH/RoHS Compliant Plating

Product AP-93 Plating Product AP-93 Plating


AP-93 is a conductive REACH/RoHS compliant finish that outperforms Cadmium. AP-93 exceeds Olive-Drab Cadmium plating (Class W) by meeting 1000 hours of dynamic salt spray, 500 mating cycles, and meets the millivolt drop shell-to-shell conductivity of nickel (Class F). AP-93 also meets a 392 °F (200° C) temperature rating, is compatible with other platings, and is available on all D38999-style Series III connectors.

AP-93 is intermateable with Cadmium, making it the perfect drop-in replacement for applications where Cadmium has been the preferred option. AP-93 is an excellent choice for harsh applications related to sea, air, weapons systems, and space systems, as it provides superior barrier protection and excellent lubricity for threaded applications.
