The fastener industry should be made aware of an important recent development in the realm of. ASTM fastener standard specifications. ASTM F/. “ASME Hex Nut, 3/8 UNC-2B, SAE J Grade 5, ASTM F Zinc Coating ZN/FE Type 5B” we simply specify: “grade 5, zinc plated. ASTM F/FM: Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings on Mechanical Fasteners, Inch and Metric.

See Section 10 and Appendix X1. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.

This phenomenon is accentuated with increasing length and decreasing diameter of the screw or bolt. A number in parentheses indicates the sstm of last reapproval. Special processing is normally required for bolts with a ratio greater than 10 in order to minimize the extremity-to-center thickness ratio.

ASTM F1941

Long screws and bolts have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 but less than Thick or thin local thickness in a location other than a signi? For example, rather than specifying: Refer to Annex A1 for neutral salt spray performance requirements for zinc, zinc alloy and cadmium coatings. The appearance of corrosion f11941 visible to the unaided eye at normal reading distance shall be cause for rejection, except when present at the edges of the tested fasteners.

The properties of the coatings shall conform to the ASTM standards for the awtm The coating must not cause the basic thread size to be transgressed by either the internal or external threads.


ASTM F – Portland Bolt

A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

High current densities increase hydrogen charging. This applies to the following cases: That standard should be consulted for more detailed information.

Measuring coating thickness on the threaded portion of a fastener is possible but impractical for in-process quality control veri?

Coating thickness values are based on the tolerances for 1A and 2A external Uni? The external thread allowance may thus be used to accommodate the coating thickness on threaded fasteners, provided the awtm coating thickness is no more than 1?

If the size of the fastener is large enough to economically use the rack-plating process, then the latter shall be used to obtain this thickness requirement.

The electrical continuity is maintained between the parts by the rack itself. ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.

ASTM / ASME spec F for Zinc Plating Which finish to choose?

The local coating thickness on a part is a result of the electrical current density at that location. Test Method F is a recognized veri? The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling. Threaded Tip, 3 0. To secure uniformity of results, samples shall be aged at room temperature for 24 h before being subjected to the salt spray test.


Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

Screw threads that are speci? We do not specify specific plating specs; we simply use the general name. The test methods for determining the coating thickness are de? As the barrel is moved through the process steps, it is also rotated such that the individual items are constantly cascading over one another. Changing the last letter to a B means that the chromate is blue-bright transparent with a bluish tinge and slight Iridescence or C means that it is yellow yellow iridescent.

I am getting really confused in the finishing section. Isn’t the color achieved by adding a dye and the corrosive resistance achieved through a sealer or thicker chromate? 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.

Periodic inspections should be conducted according to a speci? It assumes that the external thread pitch diameter is at the maximum and that the internal thread pitch diameter is at the minimum of the tolerance see Fig.
