KnowledgeBase What is EN ? Leave this field blank. Practice for Repair of Damaged and Uncoated Areas of HOt-Dip Galvanized Coatings covers appropriate methods used to repair damaged hot-dip galvanized coatings on hardware, structural shapes, and other hot-dip galvanized products, including uncoated areas remaining after initial hot-dip galvanizing.

February 14, Authored by Bernardo A. Do you usually see A spec’d for ladders, handrail, platforms? If so, how do you handle the testing requirements? I don’t think it’s number 2 because surely I would have heard about it if someone said, “Hey, we need an extra piece of angle so we can bend it to be sure it doesn’t crack.

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

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. This specification covers cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel round, square, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted a1443 of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.

Resources Few production environments have the luxury of ordering new equipment to replace existing machines on their shop floor. 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.

This 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. Inch-pounds and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel.

ASTM International – Standard References for ASTM A / AM – 07()

A also describes how to test for embrittlementessentially by comparing the bending properties of ungalvanized steel to galvanized. Anyone making use of this information assumes all liability arising from such use.

Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized 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.


There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement. This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes.

Embrittlement of Hot-dip Galvanized Steel and How to Avoid It

Cold-working of steel prior to galvanizing is the key factor for strain-age embrittlement to develop and the heat in the galvanizing process simply accelerates the recognition of embrittlement. Inch-pounds wstm SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents.

It may also be known by its trade name, e. The Architecture, Engineering and Construction AEC industry is constantly looking for process improvements to better manage potential project delays and costs. This specification covers zinc metal made from ore or other material by atm process of distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: This material provides general information only asmt is not intended as a substitute for competent professional examination and verification as to suitability and applicability.
