In this section we offer the full text of the two most commonly used military specifications available to the general public by the Department of the Navy.

We are not permitted to make some specifications available to the public.

However, we have made Military Standard Mil-A-8625, a common anodizing specification, and Mil-C-5541, a common chromate conversion coating specification, available to you for your convenience.

Please allow a short amount of time for these specifications to appear. You will then be able to print them out once they finish downloading to your screen.
