Continuous Hinges -- A-A-55500 Series Military Specification, Stainless Steel, Less Passivate.
Hinges to A-A-55500 series military specification in stainless steel (C). Supplied from stock with a passivated finish. For your convenience, we also supply our own version of this hinge in an unpassivated form. Most situations call for the stock length to be cut to a smaller size and it will require a passivate after cutting. There would be no need to have the finish in advance, and it is certainly less expensive to purchase the hinge without a finish before secondary work is done to it. See the category for this hinge series with the designation passivated. All sizes listed can be supplied with holes and cut to length as required. Stock lengths are listed. If your requirement calls for designations (B), (DF), or (E), please contact our customer service department. Please note: our internal designation for this series less the passivation is part numbered as (CX), but the part number imprint will show just the (C). Effective 10/31/94, all MS-35821 through MS-35831 series continuous hinges were superceded by A-A-55589 through A-A-55596. We currently stock most of the A-A-55500 series parts, and due to customer request we still carry stock on some of the MS-35000 series, or can quickly special run them.
