Since threaded fasteners are spun at high speeds in a centrifuge to remove excess zinc from the threads, they would fall under the A class C specification. Unless otherwise agreed to in the purchase order, delivered galvanized washers shall not be bonded to each other.

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. Workmanship, Finish, axtm Appearance 9.

The values stated in ff2329 system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

For long pieces anchor rods or articles greater than five feet in lengthcoating thickness measurements must be taken on each end and in the middle of the article.

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.

Dane- Thanks for response.

Table 2 of F lists average coating thickness requirements for production lots, batch lots, and individual specimens. This ASTM specification covers zinc coatings applied by the hot-dip process on iron and steel hardware.


ASTM F – Portland Bolt

This specification covers the requirements for hot-dip galvanizing on iron and steel products made from rolled pressed and f2239 shapes, castings, plates, bars, and strips. Suppliers shall furnish certified test results from which the shipping lots originated. Baking shall be conducted after pickling and prior to hot-dip galvanizing. If you are concerned about the hardness dropping, you could look at alternatives platings that do not require heat, like mechanical galvanizing.

When requested by the purchaser, the average galvanizing temperature that the fasteners will be subjected to shall be zstm. Average Thickness of Individual Specimen 0.

ASTM F2329

Furthermore, the galvanizer shall not be held responsible for any unanticipated distortion of parts. 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.

April 10, Authored by Alana Hochstein. Portland Bolt performs hot dip galvanizing of threaded fasteners within our 85, square foot manufacturing facility. The selection of the sampling plan shall be in accordance with Guide F A touches on threaded fasteners, but is not fastener specific.

Suitable acceptance criteria shall be agreed between the purchaser and the galvanizer before placing the order. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the asmt. Spinning removes excess zinc from the fastener so that the nut will mate with the bolt.


ASTM F vs. ASTM A | American Galvanizer’s Association

The following tests shall be made to ensure that the zinc coating is being furnished in accordance with this specification: These requirements are established by the applicable product standard, such as Speci? Thank you for the useful content. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. The manufacturer shall afford the representative of the purchaser all reasonable facilities to satisfy him that the zinc coating is being furnished in accordance with this speci?

The acceptance number in all cases is zero defects. Therefore, it must aastm clarified whether the plant has the ability to v2329 hardware after hot-dip galvanizing. D Visual inspection for conformance. It does not cover threaded fasteners that are centrifuged or otherwise handled to remove excess zinc. In no case shall the average of the measurements be below the average thickness shown in the Average Thickness on Individual Specimen column see 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.
