Standard Specification for Zinc. The specification requirements for coating thickness only contain minimums, there is no maximum coating thickness limitation in the specification.

Failure to follow this practice will result in areas that will not galvanize properly, or 6. Cold Forming Before Galvanizing with tubular product assemblies.

What are the differences between ASTM A123/A123M and ASTM A385?

It may scribed in Section 3. Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen. Log In Sign Up. The requirements for finish, appearance, and adherence are identical to those in the other main standards. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

What are the differences between… | American Galvanizer’s Association

This specification covers cold-formed welded and seamless atsm steel round, square, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Furthermore, cleaning solution compounds not generally uniform in appearance. The vent openings shall be a 7.

This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and dimensional requirements for eight grades Grades O, A, B, C, D, DH, C3, and DH3 of carbon and alloy steel nuts for general structural and mechanical uses on bolts, studs, and other externally threaded parts. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Heat q385 shall be used to determine the percentage of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, vanadium, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, columbium, and copper for the required chemical s385.


Weld Flux Removal and Welding Rods pressures when heated to the galvanizing temperature. Internal Gussets—Should be spaced a minimum of 36 in. Similarly these holes shall allow all solutions and molten 6. First, the specification details the coating thickness a358 based on bar size.

However, if the galvanizer has to perform additional work in order to prepare the product for hot-dip galvanizing, such as drilling holes to facilitate drainage or venting, the galvanizer will communicate and resolve the issue with the customer.

A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.

There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement. Steel materials and nuts shall be manufactured, processed, and formed as appropriate for their respective grades. Finally, the adherence requirement is for the wstm coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel. Inch-pound units and SI units are adtm necessarily exact equivalents.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. This practice is applicable to chromate coatings of the colorless both one and two-dipiridescent yellow or bronze, olive drab, black, colorless anodic, yellow or black anodic types, and of the dyed variety, when applied to surfaces of electrodeposited zinc, mechanically deposited zinc, hot-dipped zinc, rolled zinc, electrodeposited cadmium, or mechanically deposited coatings.

In box sections Fig.

Rebar is commonly bent prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss of ductility in a steel where an embrittled product characteristically fails by fracture without appreciable deformation. Critical Dimensions members intersect, vent holes are recommended at both sides It is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator to ensure the product has been properly designed and built before the hot-dip galvanizing process supporting specifications.


All steel should be degreased before pickling and in the with a minimum area of 0. This test method shall determine the effects of surface preparation or condition such as bar coatings on the bond strength of deformed steel reinforcing bars to concrete. This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes. Not all combinations of molten zinc adheres to the surface of the compound layers as silicon, phosphorus, carbon, and manganese can be galvanized the steel is withdrawn from the galvanizing bath.

This should be accounted for in the critical be necessary to post heat these parts in order to have them dimension design. The purpose of the calculation is to provide justification for the purchase of a higher initial cost system with a low life-cycle cost over an initially less expensive coating which has high future costs.

The requirements of this specification are very similar to those in A, except for the addition of threaded products and embrittlement requirements.

Standard Specification for Zinc Hot-Dip Galvanized Coatings on Iron and Steel Products covers individual steel pieces as well as assemblies of various classes of material.

Recent studies have 3a85 that even in 1.
