plating, anodizing, & finishing Q&As since 1989
14 ga. CRS, Zinc Electroplate 0.030" THN? Huh?
We unearthed a drawing for a part that has the following material callout:
"14 GAUGE CRS, ZINC ELECTROPLATE 0.030" THN"
Any ideas on what the THN means? 0.030" is definitely not THiN...
This is the base of a rotary bed in a chemistry related machine.

A. Hi Paul. 0.030" is not a plating thickness (that would be 10X the thickness of high quality plating and an impractical thickness for electroplating).
Sorry, neither "0.030 in." nor "THN" mean anything to me in this context.
Luck & Regards,
