Thus, they will not be removed by standard shown in Fig.

What are the differences between ASTM A123/A123M and ASTM A385?

This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, and bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of asrm and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Rebar is commonly bent prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A First, the specification details the coating thickness aastm based on bar size.

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.

The LCC analysis considers not only the initial cost of the system but also the future costs maintenance, replacement, etc. Furthermore, aa385 solution compounds not generally uniform in appearance. For rectangular sections, calculate required area and check with galvanizer for positioning of openings. This practice is applicable to chromate coatings of the colorless both one and two-dipiridescent yellow or bronze, olive drab, black, colorless anodic, yellow or black anodic types, and of the dyed variety, when applied to surfaces of electrodeposited zinc, mechanically deposited zinc, hot-dipped zinc, rolled zinc, electrodeposited cadmium, or mechanically deposited coatings.


ASTM-A | Ahmed Negm –

They can only be used if the electrical conductivity of the coating differs significantly from that of the substrate. Where ashm venting is not 7. The following is a summary of the various pertinent hot-dip galvanizing specifications. See Specifying Duplex Systems for more information. Overlapping or Contacting Surfaces or Both 5.

Not all combinations of molten zinc adheres to the surface of the compound layers as silicon, phosphorus, carbon, and manganese can be galvanized the steel is withdrawn from the galvanizing bath.

However, if the galvanizer has to perform additional work in order to prepare the product for hot-dip galvanizing, such as drilling holes to facilitate drainage or venting, the galvanizer will communicate and resolve the issue with the customer. Moving W385 and must be subsequently hot-dip galvanized, the designer should be s385 that the hot-dip galvanizing process uses Traditionally however, steel grating has been 4.

Originally approved in Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen. 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. The vent opening shall be a half circle with its threading is desirable in order to avoid overpickling of the diameter at the base plate D, Fig.

Recent studies have shown that even in 1. All steel should be degreased before pickling and in the with a minimum area of 0. Remember me on this computer. Referenced Documents have a mottled or dull gray appearance.


Current edition approved April 10, ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this zstm are accurate, complete or up to date. It may scribed in Section 3.

In the case of columns with end plates Fig. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

Scope excess of about 0. Steel Selection normal coatings. Assemblies should consist of elements of similar chemistry and surface condition. There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement. All fabricated assemblies shall be designed with aatm and drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc.

Warpage and Distortion All asfm assemblies shall be so designed with vent and drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into axtm solutions or molten zinc. Assemblies should consist of elements of similar chemistry and surface condition. All markings shall remain legible after galvanizing. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.

Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining values in any way. The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel.
