Military & Defense

Accurate Precision Plating (APP) offers a wide range of precision, high-quality metal plating and finishing services for the military and defense industry. We offer metal plating solutions for various military and defense applications, including ammunition, hardware, electronics, vehicles, tanks, missiles, and more. Military and defense metal plating applications require adherence to extremely close tolerances and compliance to stringent specifications. Our military plating services consistently withstand the rigorous demands of combat and offer reliable performance in mission-critical and challenging conditions and hazardous environments.

 Our mil-spec plating services offer numerous benefits, including the following:

  • Enhances corrosion, oxidation, and chemical resistance
  • Increases heat and extreme temperature resistance
  • Improves electrical conductivity
  • Reduces surface abrasions and friction
  • Increases anti-galling, anti-fretting, and wear resistance
  • Offers permanent dry lubrication and self-lubrication properties
  • Improves appearance


To receive defense contracts, metal finishing companies must strictly comply to the specific standards and formulas set by the Department of Defense. Mil-spec plating requirements are both numerous and complex—with each specification consisting of a variety of classifications and sub-classifications 

At APP, we have over 50 years of experience working with military requirements and best practices. We deliver the highest-level of precision military metal finishes and plating applications that adhere to both industry-mandated and engineered-outlined specifications. Our capabilities offer the uncompromising results necessary for military and defense applications. Also, all our MIL standards and processes are all ISO 9001:2015 certified.
