I have a drawing that states prepare indicated surface for electrical bond per HP14-30. Does anyone know where I can find that document or what the process is? Thanks

Hi, Andrew. Are the parts made of aluminum? I think this is a chromate conversion coating / chem film spec., but I don't know the origin -- maybe Hewlett-Packard?

HP spec of this variety are from Hughes - could be Hughes Helicopter, Mesa, AZ - now part of Boeing. Bonding in this sense typically means doing everything possible to eliminate any electrical resistance between 2 surfaces which can be from mechanically polishing, cleaning and/or chromate conversion coating - however, if the later, it would always be Class 3 as any chromate increases the electrical resistance between 2 surfaces.
