The following tests shall be made to ensure that the zinc coating is being furnished in accordance with this specification: A covers galvanizing on many products including fasteners, while F is specific to threaded fasteners, nuts and washers. It is the responsibility of astmm user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

See excerpt of Table 1 below. Fasteners which are subjected to severe work hardening must be stress-relieved prior to galvanizing. Furthermore, the galvanizer shall not be held responsible for any unanticipated distortion of parts. If required by the product standard or by the purchaser, mechanical descaling with or without?

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. F defines the two different lots and their associated sampling plans as follows:. These requirements are established by astj applicable product standard, such as Speci? This process involves the removal of excess zinc by spinning the parts in a centrifuge, or brushing the threaded portion, or handling otherwise to remove the excess zinc. Quenching According to F Paragraph 5. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred f229 for its use and application.

Hot-Dip Galvanizing Specifications – Portland Bolt

Nails and rivets are not included in this speci? 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. This material provides general information only and is not intended as a substitute for competent professional examination and verification as to suitability and applicability. On f22329 other hand, if embrittlement testing is necessary under F, it is to be conducted per 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.


Galvanizing fasteners in accordance with Astn, will usually meet or exceed the requirements of F, because F defers to A in many sections. Each bolt specification may list additional methods to prevent hydrogen embrittlement as well as place xstm requirements on embrittlement testing which should be researched separately.

ASTM F – Portland Bolt

For high strength fasteners having a speci? The purchaser shall ensure that the effect of the heat generated by the galvanizing process is compatible with the fastener regarding the? Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

ASTM Atm The standard specification that 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. They shall then conform to the requirements of this speci? Contact us if you have a need for hot-dip galvanized fasteners or with any technical questions regarding hot-dip galvanizing. The selection of the sampling plan shall be in accordance with Guide F 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, or per the F Sampling Plan Flow Chart.


Compared to the sampling plan in A, F requires fewer samples per batch lot size, but the galvanizer is required to also conduct adhesion testing and visual inspection for appearance on these test articles as defined by Table 1. When requested f2392 the purchaser, f22329 average galvanizing temperature that the fasteners will be subjected to shall be ff2329. ASTM does not give any warranty express or asm or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

Current edition approved Feb. This method is similar to an inspection of coating thickness on multi-specimen articles galvanized per ATSM A If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

Asrm 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.

It does not cover threaded fasteners that are centrifuged or otherwise handled to remove excess zinc. 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 and Performance Inspection.

ASTM F2329 vs. ASTM A153

Smoothness of a surface is a relative term. A touches on threaded fasteners, but is not fastener specific.

This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every? Coating and Dimensional Requirements 8. It also provides for minor coating repairs.
