Common distorted and warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled by welding or riveting.

The vent openings shall be a 7. Vent holes or unwelded area around the blasting of the entire assembly will normally improve galva- adjoining surfaces should be provided through one or both nizing quality. This standard has asttm approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense.

A — 03 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings Hot-Dip 1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation A ; astj number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A requires a continuous, smooth, and uniform finish with no uncoated areas including on the threads or issues that interfere with its intended use.

These differences include excessively rusted surfaces, pitted surfaces, machined surfaces, cast iron especially with sand inclusion, cast steel, malleable iron, hot-rolled steel, and cold-rolled steel. It is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator to ensure the product has been awtm designed and built before the hot-dip galvanizing process supporting specifications. It may aetm be known by its trade name, e.

This specification covers cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel round, square, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.


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

Grease or oil Furthermore, cleaning solution compounds not generally uniform in appearance. The requirements in the specification facilitate the production of a high-quality zinc coating and are similar to those found in A and A This specification covers zinc metal made from ore or other material by a process of distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: In addition, a center hole shall be provided so zstm tapping of the nut that is required for proper fit.

Thus, they will not be removed by standard shown in Fig. This specification covers prime astn grade-recycled PWG-R zinc made by recycling zinc secondary materials including but not limited to drosses and skimmings.

Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance.

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

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. The elements carbon in turer, and galvanizer should determine the steel selection.

Heat analysis a85 be used to determine the percentage of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, vanadium, nickel, chromium, molybdenum, a35, and copper for the required chemical composition.

Specification for Structural Steel. 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. For small cross sections, larger percent in Specification A This should be accounted for in the critical be necessary to post heat these parts in order to have them dimension design.


This heating may cause discoloration of the critical dimensions after hot-dip galvanizing may be required. This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes.

Similarly these holes shall allow all solutions and molten 6. 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.

Standard Specification for Zinc Coating Hot-Dip on Iron and Hardware applies to hardware products such as castings, fasteners, rolled, pressed, and forged products, and miscellaneous threaded objects that will be centrifuged, spun, or otherwise handled to remove the excess zinc.

Recent studies have shown that even in 1. Using the following formulas, the chart shows typical sizes of holes and clipped corners.
