All the ASTM fastener standards refer to F for hot dip galvanizing, so that would be the most appropriate standard to reference. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

In no case shall the average reading of a single specimen be below the average thickness shown in the Average Thickness on Individual Specimen column. Fasteners and nuts over 3? We are are not certain what standards are commonly used in Dubai, so we cannot speak to those.

D Visual inspection for conformance. According to Note C of Table 1, It is only required to conduct testing on samples for coating thickness once every five batch lots. It is not a dip spin coating like hot dip galvanizing is. Sal- Are you asking which galvanizing standard you should be using? 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 F2329

A and F again are more or less the same, F references back to the processes in A, but goes into more detail with respect to the specifics of threaded fasteners. Beams and structural members f2239 defined as steel products and are galvanized per A One of our experienced sales reps will be happy to answer any of your questions. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

ASTM A A covers galvanizing on many products including fasteners, while F is specific to threaded fasteners, nuts and washers.

In addition, small parts shall be air cooled as needed in order to prevent aastm formation of zinc oxide. These instances can include when steel has been severely work hardened or when the galvanizing bath temperature exceeds the stress relief or tempering temperatures of the fasteners. Note—Based upon mathematical calculations, 1. 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.


The number aatm specimens to be tested per order shall be as speci?

NOTE 1—The scope of this speci? The information provided herein is not intended as a representation or warranty on the part of the AGA. Will galvanizing bolts, that will be used for Sub-Sea hydratightightening using AquaMax jacks permissible, or would the stretching of the bolt under tension remove the galvanized warranty.

The following tests shall be made to ensure that the zinc coating is being furnished in accordance with this specification: Average Thickness of Individual Specimen 0.

Coating Thickness Table 2 of F lists average coating thickness requirements for production ast, batch lots, and individual specimens. The selection of the sampling plan shall be in accordance with Guide F It is important to note the acceptance criterion in all cases is zero defects.

Parts may be dull due to the aatm of silicon in the steel. Also in which material we are coating or galavanizing. Workmanship, Finish, astn Appearance 9. The batch lot inspection process is more similar to inspection under A than inspection of production lots, but Table 1 of F has some additional requirements to consider. Quenching According to F Paragraph 5. The packaging shall comply with the purchaser requirements.

The differences in the types of lots entail different sampling plans, which specify the number of test articles for performing various test methods during inspection of the finished product.

Hot-Dip Galvanizing Specifications

However, if a purchaser also requires the galvanizer to inspect dimensional requirements of parts upon delivery, they must provide atsm galvanizer with the necessary tools and inspection gauges.

The values stated aastm each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. If the galvanizing process is carried out at a higher temperature than the stress relief or the tempering temperature of the fasteners, than the purchaser shall make provision for mechanical testing.


C Coating thickness frequency of satm Zinc Coating Thickness Requirements: The zinc used for the coating shall conform to the chemical composition required. In case the geometry of the specimen does not permit? This specification covers the requirements for hot-dip galvanizing on iron and steel products made from rolled pressed and forged shapes, castings, plates, bars, and strips. Any insights would be deeply appreciated.

I am having difficulty determining the hot dip zinc coating needed for an anchor bolt 60M 60mm and 1. ASTM A This specification covers the requirements for hot-dip galvanizing on iron and steel products made from rolled pressed and forged shapes, castings, plates, asym, and strips. To determine how many samples are required to test for conformance based on the lot size, F refers to Table 3 of F, Practice for Fastener Sampling for Specified Mechanical Properties asgm Performance Inspection.

Hot-Dip Galvanizing Specifications – Portland Bolt

Rob- Tensioning the bolt will not adversely affect the galvanizing. The type of production lot process will determine which column should be referenced for the sample size of each inspection criteria, as summarized in the table below, ff2329 per the F Sampling Plan Flow Chart.

Packaging and Package Marking For test method, see Since threaded fasteners are spun at high speeds in a centrifuge to remove excess zinc from the threads, they would fall under the A class C specification.

There are three columns listing the number of test articles for three different inspection tests required under F Therefore, the supplier of the fasteners submitting the product to the galvanizer shall be aware of the tempering temperature of the fasteners relative to the temperature of the galvanizing bath and the potential effect it may have on the product.
