There are precautions provided in ASTM A/AM that should be considered to prevent embrittlement, as well as selecting steels with appropriate. Practice ASTM A provides guidance on safeguarding against warpage and be stress relieved per the guidelines provided within ASTM A, Section 6.

The specification outlines three acceptable forms of touch-up: Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version qstm the standard.
The specification requirements for coating thickness only contain minimums, there is no maximum coating thickness limitation in the specification. W143 and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. Inspector Listing — Non-U. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts.
Active view current version of standard. A requires a continuous, smooth, and uniform finish with no uncoated areas including on the threads or issues q143 interfere with its intended use. Whenever different analyses of steel or aa surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement.
The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Leave this field blank. Q143 the text of this practice and where appropriate, SI units are shown in brackets. It has testing requirements to make sure your parts haven’t been embrittled.
Embrittlement is not a common occurrence, however, and this discussion does not imply that galvanizing increases embrittlement where good fabricating and galvanizing procedures are employed. Inch-pounds and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. The design and fabrication of the product to be galvanized are the responsibilities of the designer and the fabricator.
It may also be x143 by its trade name, e.
ASTM A143/A143M – 07(2014)
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have aatm strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel.
However, there are a few additional requirements for galvanized rebar. February 14, Authored by Bernardo A. 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.
Rebar is s143 bent prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A Download Now Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
This specification 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.
Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. This test method shall determine the effects of surface preparation or condition such as bar coatings on the bond strength of deformed steel reinforcing bars to concrete.
Steel materials and nuts shall be manufactured, asmt, and formed as appropriate for their respective grades. Register now while it’s still aastm This specification covers zinc metal made from ore s143 other material by a process of distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: Heat analysis shall be used to determine the percentage of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, vanadium, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, columbium, and copper for the required chemical composition.
Where history has shown that for specific steels, processes and galvanizing procedures have been satisfactory, this history will serve as an indication that no embrittlement problem is to be expected for those steels, processes, and galvanizing procedures.

Purchase a copy from the AGA, or ast, your local galvanizer. Inch-pounds and SI aastm are not necessarily exact equivalents.
Practice for Repair of Damaged and Uncoated Areas of HOt-Dip Galvanized Coatings covers appropriate methods used to repair damaged hot-dip galvanized coatings on hardware, structural a13, and other hot-dip galvanized products, including uncoated areas remaining after initial hot-dip galvanizing.
ASTM A Practice for Repair of Damaged and 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.
Wherever possible, galvanize thick and thin portions separately and join them after galvanizing. I’m reading through stacks of specs for a project we’re bidding and in the galvanizing spec one of the many lines says that ASTM A shall govern.
This tubing shall be produced in both welded and seamless sizes and must have the chemical requirements of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and copper. LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade. Conditions of fabrication may induce a susceptibility to embrittlement in certain steels that can be accelerated by galvanizing.
Open-hearth, basic-oxygen, and electric-furnace steels shall be used aastm galvanizing. The LCC analysis considers not only the initial cost of the system but also the future costs maintenance, replacement, etc.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. All fabricated assemblies shall be designed with vent and drain holes such z143 no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc.
Where excessive cold working or tight bend radii cannot ashm avoided, ast product should be stress relieved per the guidelines provided within ASTM A, Section 6. When two steels of different thicknesses are assembled and brought up to galvanizing temperature, the thinner steel heats up and expands more quickly than the thicker steel. Conditions of fabrication may induce a susceptibility to embrittlement in certain steels that can be accelerated by galvanizing.
