The paper contains methods for eliminating hydrogen embrittlement of cadmium and chromium electroplated ultra high strength alloy steel items for cartridge or propellant actuated devices. Since the initiation of the project, it has been concluded that the only way to completely eliminate hydrogen embrittlement is to avoid completely the introduction of hydrogen into the item being plated. Methods to minimize embrittlement, to the point that it will not interfere with the function of applicable items, have been determined. Author
