ASTM A Practice for Repair of Damaged astmm Uncoated Areas of HOt-Dip Galvanized Coatings covers appropriate methods used to repair damaged hot-dip galvanized coatings on hardware, structural shapes, and other hot-dip galvanized products, including uncoated areas remaining after initial hot-dip galvanizing.

For rectangular sections, calculate required area and check with galvanizer for positioning of openings. Within the text of this specification and where aetm, SI units are shown in brackets.

Inspector Listing – Non-U. Common distorted and warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled by welding or riveting.

See Specifying Duplex Systems for more information. The following can asfm warpage and distortion: NOTE 1—Strengthening gussets in channel sections should be cropped for zinc drainage.

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

Internal Gussets—Should be spaced a minimum of 36 in. Marking for Identification Critical Dimensions members intersect, vent holes are recommended at both sides Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. Vent holes or unwelded area around the blasting of the entire assembly will normally improve galva- adjoining surfaces should be provided through one or both nizing quality.


There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement.

Standard Specification for Zinc. Failure to follow this practice will result in areas that will not galvanize properly, or 6. In box sections Fig. This wstm covers the requirements for hot-dip zinc coating applied to carbon steel and alloy steel bolts, screws, washers, nuts, and special threaded fasteners applied by the hot-dip coating process.

A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. In addition, a layer of the until after an item has been galvanized. Traditionally however, steel grating has been 4. Fabrications can have more than one material category, such a358 a frame assembly. However, the AGA does provide a compilation of specifications pertinent to galvanizing.

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

See attached drawings for This is generate gas which will prevent zinc from sealing the contact accomplished by cropping the corner to provide an opening edges. Help Center Find new research papers in: In addition, a center hole shall be provided so that tapping of the nut that is required for proper fit. Shearing, Cutting and Punching Before Galvanizing 9. 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.


Last previous edition approved in as A — 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.

For small cross sections, larger percent in Specification A The elements carbon asrm turer, and galvanizer should determine the steel selection. The following chart is for square box sections only.

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. If rebar is bent fabricated after the galvanized coating is applied and any flaking or cracking occurs, it is not rejectable.

They can only be used if the electrical conductivity of the aztm differs significantly from that of the substrate.
