Amphenol Aerospace Offers Military Cadmium Plating Alternative

Amphenol Aerospace has received authorization from the Defense Logistics Agency for its black zinc nickel “Z” class plating finish.

This qualification covers all Amphenol Aerospace Series III D38999 connectors. According to Amphenol Aerospace, black zinc nickel and Durmalon are the only qualified mil-spec-approved alternatives to cadmium.

Commercial, industrial, and military markets are rapidly moving away from hazardous materials such as cadmium. Amphenol said it is the only supplier offering customers two non-hazardous finishes.

The Black Zinc Nickel and Durmalon finishes are RoHS-compliant and meet or exceed MIL-DTL-38999 specifications. Both Black Zinc Nickel and Durmalon plating finishes can withstand 500 hours of dynamic salt spray and 500 mating cycles. Both plating options are also conductive and non-reflective.
