Military PCB Plating

At Alternate Finishing Inc. (AFI), we specialize in providing plating solutions, for military-grade PCBs and electronic components that meet the requirements of the military and aerospace industries.

The Importance of Military PCB Plating & ITAR Registration

In military applications, electronic devices often endure conditions such as extreme environments, temperature fluctuations, and exposure to corrosive elements. Given these demanding circumstances, these electronic components must rely on high-quality plating that meets military specifications to ensure their reliability and performance.

Mil-spec plating standards are primarily implemented by the Department of Defense to address factors like conductivity, insulation, hardness, ruggedness, chemical resistance, oxygen deprivation, while adhering to ITAR PCB compliance.

As a registered service provider under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), we meticulously adhere to the regulations governing the manufacture, export, and temporary import of defense articles. Additionally, we strictly comply with the rules surrounding the provision of defense services and brokering activities associated with items listed on the United States Munitions List (USML).

These regulations undergo regular updates and revisions to align with advancements in technology, as well as changes in U.S. national security and foreign policy interests.
