Standard Sstm for Zinc Hot-Dip Galvanized Coatings on Iron and Steel Products covers individual steel pieces as well as assemblies of various classes of material. A — 03 Aetm Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings Hot-Dip 1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation A ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year sstm last revision.

This test method deals with the standard procedures for establishing the relative bond strength of steel reinforcing bars in concrete using beam-end specimens.

Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. Marking for Identification A requires a continuous, smooth, and uniform finish with no uncoated areas including on the threads or issues that interfere with its intended use.

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

Re-machining or otherwise reprocessing of function freely. In the case of columns with end plates Fig. Current edition approved April 10, The elements carbon in turer, and galvanizer should determine the steel selection. Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen.

However, there are a few additional requirements for galvanized rebar. Recent studies have shown that even in 1. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.

Gusset plates shall not be spaced closer than 36 in. This specification covers zinc metal made from ore or other material by a process of distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: Help Center Find new research papers in: The LCC analysis considers not only the initial cost of the system but also the future costs maintenance, replacement, etc.


Critical Dimensions members intersect, vent holes are recommended at both sides The following is a summary of the various pertinent hot-dip galvanizing specifications. LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade.

It may scribed in Section 3. The experience of the steel supplier, designer, manufac- an influence on the coating structure. The vent openings shall be a 7. Internal Gussets—Should be spaced a minimum of 36 in. These differences include excessively rusted surfaces, pitted surfaces, machined surfaces, cast iron especially with sand inclusion, cast steel, malleable iron, hot-rolled steel, and cold-rolled steel.

Fabrications can have more than one material category, such as a frame assembly.

ASTM A / AM – 11 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings (Hot-Dip)

Inspector Listing – Non-U. This tubing shall be produced in both welded and seamless sizes and must have the chemical requirements of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and copper. Such uncoated surfaces cause a rust staining after exposure to 4.

The material categories covered in the specification include structural steel and plate, strips and bars, pipes and tubing, and wires. There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement. Referenced Documents have a mottled or dull gray appearance. Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense.

This is generate gas which will prevent zinc from sealing the contact accomplished by cropping the corner to provide an opening edges. All fabricated assemblies shall be so designed with vent and drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc.

Originally approved in Thus, they will not be removed by standard shown in Fig. However, if the a358 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.


In addition, a layer of the until after an item has been galvanized. Remember me on this computer.

ASTM A – 08 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings (Hot-Dip)

Requirements concerning the renovation of uncoated areas after initial hot-dip galvanizing are contained within the material specifications A, A, A Vent holes or unwelded area around the blasting of the entire assembly will normally improve galva- adjoining surfaces should be a835 through one or both nizing quality.

Scope excess of about 0. Specification for Structural Steel.

aatm All fabricated assemblies shall be designed with vent and drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.

ASTM Specifications

When an assembly of steel parts or an individual steel part has been designed and fabricated with critical dimensions and must be subsequently hot-dip galvanized, the designer should be aware that the hot-dip galvanizing process chemical cleaning to prepare the surfaces for coating and this may alter the critical dimensions.

Grease or oil Eddy-current-type thickness measurement is a non-destructive test measuring variations in the impedance of an eddy-current inducing coil caused by coating thickness variations.

Similarly these holes shall allow all solutions and molten 6. For small cross sections, larger percent in Specification A Moving parts such as handles or hinges should be galvanized separately and assembled after galvanizing. Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss of ductility in a steel where an embrittled product characteristically fails by fracture without appreciable deformation. Warpage and Distortion
