"International testing methods and standards for decorative plating"
I AM WORKING IN A ZIPPER MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY. WE ARE DOING DIFFERENT TYPE OF DECORATIVE PLATING LIKE BRONZE, NICKEL, BRASS, ANTIQUE FINISHING AND PAINTING. WE WANT TO KNOW INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS AND TEST METHODS FOR DECORATIVE PLATING AND PAINTING. PLEASE ADVICE A SUITABLE BOOK.
ZIPPER MANUFACTERING - CHENNAI
Thousands of plating standards are available from at least a dozen different standards bodies, Umapathy, but perhaps the simplest approach is to get a copy of the "Annual Book of ASTM Standards" ASTM Volume 02.05 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] Section 2, "Metallic and Inorganic Coatings". It's a handy book of about a thousand pages.
