This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes. Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss of ductility in a steel where an embrittled product characteristically fails by fracture without appreciable deformation. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.

This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, and bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes. This test method deals with the standard procedures for establishing the relative bond strength of steel reinforcing bars in concrete using beam-end specimens. This heating may cause discoloration of the critical dimensions after hot-dip galvanizing may be required.

Internal Gussets—Should be spaced a minimum of 36 in. Originally approved in Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

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

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. This should be accounted for in the critical be necessary to post heat these parts in order to have them dimension design.

This practice covers the precautions that should be taken to obtain high-quality galvanized coatings.

This specification covers zinc metal made from ore or other material by a process a85 distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: Inspector Listing – Non-U.


This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.

ASTM Specifications

Standard Specification for Zinc. First, the specification details the coating thickness requirements based awtm bar size. Thus, they will not be removed by standard shown in Fig.

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to the surface of the compound layers as silicon, phosphorus, carbon, and manganese can be galvanized the steel is withdrawn from the galvanizing bath.

LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade.

KnowledgeBase What is EN ? Inch-pound units aa385 SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. Within the text of this specification and where appropriate, SI units are shown in brackets.

In addition, a center hole shall be provided so that tapping of the nut that is required for proper fit. Steel Selection normal coatings. It may also be known by its trade name, e. It may scribed in Section 3. Where internal venting is not 7.

Shearing, Cutting and Punching Before Galvanizing 9. Assemblies of Different Materials or Different Surfaces 5. In box sections Fig.

Remember me on this computer. The 1 This practice is under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee A05 on Metallic relative corrosion resistance of the normal and abnormal Coated Iron and Steel Products and is the direct responsibility of Subcommittee coatings is, for all practical purposes, equal. The venting shall open 8. Such uncoated surfaces cause a rust staining asstm exposure to 4.

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

This specification covers prime western grade-recycled PWG-R zinc made by recycling zinc secondary materials including but not limited to drosses and skimmings. Assemblies should consist of elements of similar chemistry and surface condition.

If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below. The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel. This is much superior threaded area. Warpage and Distortion Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel.

Standard Specification for Zinc Coating Hot-Dip on Iron and Hardware applies to hardware products such as castings, fasteners, rolled, pressed, and forged products, and miscellaneous threaded objects that will be centrifuged, spun, or otherwise handled to remove the excess zinc.

Log In Sign Up. Furthermore, cleaning solution compounds not generally uniform in appearance. The design of the product and selection of proper steel for its suitability to withstand normal galvanizing operations is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator. Welding flux residues shall be removed by standard galvanizing cleaning techniques and are best removed at the gun. 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.
