Question on Chrome Plating Specs
Does anyone have any information on 'MFZn2-B' and 'Chrome plate per Chrysler PS 415' (plated with nickel and chromium)? What exactly is MFZn2-B ? Between the 2 plating treatments, which one is stronger and more durable ? Is there any place where I can find information about this ? Thank you very much.

Sorry, Ken, I don't know exactly what 'MFZn2-B' means, and I don't have the Chrysler spec you referenced.
But 'stronger and more durable' has no real meaning in this context; you would need to be more explicit about what you are after, such as corrosion resistance under specific conditions, wear resistance against specific conditions.
Please tell us your situation, and people may be able to be more helpful. I don't know if you are a designer trying to specify a plating or a consumer trying to compare the plating listed on two advertisements. Thanks!

It sounds like you should be calling up and talking to your customer. If someone is asking you to plate to a spec, then you should expect that person to answer questions about the spec and what they want from you.

Perhaps I'm late, 'MFZn2-B' is a specification of MAZDA/JAPANReiner Zilinski

Ed. note: Thanks, Reiner.
A. MFZN2B is part of the specification NES-M4040, a Nissan specification.
The notation means:
MF means Iron substrate
Zn means Zinc Plating finish
2 means 2 microns film thickness.
B means Bright Chromate.
The PS-415 is a chrome plating specification for Chrysler.
I hope this information is clear for you.
