This specification covers the requirements for black oxide coatings on parts.
This coating has been used typically to improve the anti-chafing and anti-friction properties of carbon and low-alloy steel parts, particularly for sliding or bearing surfaces, by providing a finish coating that retains an oil film, but usage is not limited to such applications.
