Q. I am into blackened anodizing, can you please inform me with the American hardcoat standards, Mil-A-8625 [link is to free spec spec at Defense Logistics Agency, dla.mil] type III and AMS2469 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] (wear test) and also the European hardcoat standards, ISO 10074 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] and BS 5599 [affil. link to spec at Techstreet] as soon as possible.

A. Hi, Gerald. We've linked your inquiry to sources of those standards to help you buy them; with the exception of the Mil spec, these are all copyrighted specifications and cannot be copied for you -- according to international copyright law you must buy your own copies. Good luck.
