Phil- The hot dip galvanizing process is more or less the same within all of those standards, the difference is how they are handled. ASTM A A covers galvanizing on many products including fasteners, while F is specific to threaded fasteners, nuts and washers.

Hot-Dip Galvanizing Specifications – Portland Bolt
Gagan- Sometimes the heat from the hot dip galvanizing operation can slightly soften small hardened items like this. This material provides general information only adtm is not intended as a substitute for competent professional examination and verification as to suitability and applicability. Also in which material we are coating or galavanizing.
If you are concerned about the hardness dropping, you could look at alternatives platings that do not require heat, like mechanical galvanizing. Beams and structural members are defined as steel products and are galvanized per A F defines the two different lots and their associated sampling plans as follows: 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.
Coating Thickness Table 2 of F lists average coating thickness requirements for production lots, batch lots, and individual specimens. 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.
Electroplating is an entirely different process and is a much thinner coating. The coating thickness requirements of A Table 1 meet or exceed those of F Table 2 except for: It is intended to be applicable to fasteners that are centrifuged or otherwise handled to remove excess zinc.
Contact us if you have a need for hot-dip galvanized fasteners or with any technical questions regarding hot-dip galvanizing. Table 2 of F lists average coating thickness requirements for production lots, batch lots, and individual specimens. ASTM F describes two different sampling plans for batch lots and production lots.
It is important to ensure the customer specifies which type of lot is required. For each of these types, there are also inspection criteria for coating thickness, visual appearance, and adhesion.
ASTM F2329 vs. ASTM A153
A summary of the numerical differences between the two specifications related to coating thickness requirements asmt all materials is presented in the table: This method is similar to an inspection of coating thickness on multi-specimen articles galvanized per ATSM A It is necessary for the galvanizer to communicate the bath temperature to the customer to ensure the end user understands the effects the galvanizing temperature will have on the steel.
Could you please clarify? According to Note C of Table 1, It f229 only required to conduct testing on samples for coating thickness once every five batch lots. Therefore, it must be clarified whether the plant has the ability to r2329 hardware after hot-dip galvanizing. This specification is intended to be applied to hardware items that are centrifuged or otherwise handled to remove excess zinc.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Nails and rivets are not included in F For example, a lot size of articles under the detection process requires testing of 11 samples for coating thickness, 11 samples for visual appearance, and 3 f23329 for adhesion.
Afif — The difference between hot dip galvanizing structural articles and fasteners is the spinning. April 10, Authored by Bernardo A. On the other hand, if embrittlement testing is necessary under F, it is to be conducted f22329 ASTM F a wedge positioned and tensioned under a bolt headwhich is a different method than any of the methods described within A Paragraph 9.

However, if a purchaser also requires the galvanizer to inspect dimensional requirements of parts upon delivery, they must provide the galvanizer with the necessary tools xstm inspection gauges.
F defines the two different lots and their associated sampling plans as follows:. Furthermore, there are two types of production lots: ASTM A does not cover threaded bolts and fasteners. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
