The fastener industry should be made aware of an important recent development in the realm of. ASTM fastener standard specifications. ASTM F/. “ASME Hex Nut, 3/8 UNC-2B, SAE J Grade 5, ASTM F Zinc Coating ZN/FE Type 5B” we simply specify: “grade 5, zinc plated. ASTM F/FM: Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings on Mechanical Fasteners, Inch and Metric.

My follow up question would be, if the fasteners are coated with trivalent chromite adding the designation “T”why do the salt spray hours f1914 the ASTM spec differ between any color chromate designation? Periodic inspections should be conducted according to a speci? The local coating thickness on a part is a result of the electrical f19941 density at that location. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.

That’s exactly what I needed. The effect of thread damage is worse on heavy? The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling. For example, rather than specifying: Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical satm, which you may attend.

It f9141 highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: Toby — Thanks for boiling it down for me. Thickness Designation 3 5 8 12 Minimum Thickness in.

F — 00 Standard Speci? The electrodeposited coating shall cover all surfaces and shall meet the following requirements: Long screws and bolts have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 but less than Special processing is normally required for bolts with a ratio greater than 10 in order to minimize the extremity-to-center thickness ratio.


For this reason the control mechanism speci? Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

ASTM / ASME spec F for Zinc Plating Which finish to choose?

Refer to Appendix X3 for further information on effects of coating on pitch diameter, allowances and tolerances for external and internal threads. The cascading action randomly exposes the surface of each individual piece to the process electrodes while also maintaining electrical continuity between all of the parts.

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. Coating thickness values are based on the tolerances for 1A and 2A external Uni?

ASTM / ASME spec F1941 for Zinc Plating … Which finish to choose?

That standard should be consulted for more detailed information. In this process, quantities of an item are placed on a support, called a rack. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The values given in parentheses are for information only. This can 6 damage the external threads of fasteners. 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.

It is informational only satm not an official part of the standard; the f141 text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. For internally threaded fasteners barrel-plating is generally suitable.

The appearance aastm corrosion products visible to the unaided eye at normal reading distance shall be cause for rejection, except when present at the edges of the tested fasteners.


The coating must not cause the basic thread size to be transgressed by either the internal or external threads. We do not specify specific plating specs; we simply use the general name.

Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Eight hours is considered a typical example of baking duration.

Baking to relieve hydrogen embrittlement must be performed prior to the application of the chromate? It is my understanding that the darker colors are a naturally occurring process due to the hexavalent chromium and 1f941 greater corrosion resistance. This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads.

It specifies coating thickness, supplementary hexavalent chromate or trivalent chromite finishes, corrosion resistance, precautions for managing the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen embrittlement relief for high-strength and surface-hardened fasteners. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.

ASTM F1941

Asmt to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. It specifies coating f1491, supplementary hexavalent chromate or non-hexavalent conversion coatings, corrosion resistance, precautions for managing the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen embrittlement relief for high-strength and surface-hardened fasteners.

Isn’t the color achieved by adding a dye and the corrosive resistance achieved through a sealer or thicker chromate? All I want is a single spec to call out, to get the basic zinc-electroplated fastener. Refer to Appendix X1. December 9, Q.
