The dull appearance shall not be cause for rejection.

Will f23329 bolts, that will be used for Sub-Sea hydratightightening using AquaMax jacks permissible, or would the stretching of the bolt under tension remove the galvanized warranty. Current edition approved Feb.

ASTM F2329

Afif — The difference between hot dip galvanizing structural articles and fasteners is the spinning. 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 average of those selected measurements is the average coating thickness. 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.

Contact us if you have a need for hot-dip galvanized fasteners or with any technical questions regarding hot-dip galvanizing. ASTM F The standard specification that covers the requirements for hot-dip zinc coating applied to carbon steel and alloy steel bolts, screws, washers, nuts, and special threaded f232 applied by the hot-dip coating process.


The material provided herein has been developed to provide accurate and authoritative information about after-fabrication hot-dip galvanized steel.

Coating Thickness Table 2 of F lists average coating thickness requirements for production lots, batch lots, and individual specimens. The type of production lot process will determine which column should be referenced for the sample size of each inspection criteria, as summarized in the table below, or per the F Sampling Plan Flow Chart.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Your email address will not be published. ASTM A A covers galvanizing on many products including fasteners, while F329 is specific to threaded fasteners, nuts and washers. The number of specimens to be tested per order shall be as speci? aatm

C Coating thickness frequency of measurements: April 10, Authored by Bernardo A. According to Note C of Table 1, It is only required to conduct testing on samples for coating thickness once every five batch lots.

Vinay- ASTM A and A both say that the maximum service temperature for galvanized bolts should not exceed F unless caution is used in regard to the potential for liquid hydrogen embirittlement.

It also provides for minor coating repairs. Baking shall be conducted after pickling and prior to hot-dip galvanizing. This material provides general information only and is not intended as a substitute for competent professional examination and verification as to suitability and applicability.

Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. The temperatures used in the hot-dip galvanizing process typically do not appreciably alter the mechanical properties of steel, but there are some instances when there are potential concerns. Average Thickness of Individual Specimen astj. Beams and structural members are defined as steel products and are galvanized per A The purchaser shall ensure that the effect of the heat generated by the galvanizing process is compatible with the fastener regarding the?


Leave this field empty. Rejection and Rehearing The differences in the types of lots entail different sampling plans, which specify the number of test articles for performing various test methods during inspection of the finished product.

If your requirement ast, for hot dip galvanizing, electroplating would not be sufficient. If the customer specifies, the galvanizer will be required to provide the average galvanizing temperature the fasteners will be exposed to.

ASTM F – Portland Bolt

Galvanizing fasteners in accordance with A, will usually meet or exceed the requirements of F, because F defers to A in many sections. 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? This specification is intended to be applied to hardware items that are centrifuged or otherwise handled to remove excess zinc.
