Within the text of this specification and where appropriate, SI units are shown in brackets.

In addition, a center hole shall be provided so that the cumulative area of the vent holes meets the recommended minimum. Cosmetically this accelerated growth is seen as a gray matte finished coating as opposed to the usual bright and smooth appearance of galvanized coatings.

Your comments are invited either for a85 of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

ASTM Specifications | American Galvanizer’s Association

Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss of ductility in a steel where an embrittled product characteristically fails by fracture without appreciable deformation. The elements carbon in excess of about 0. See Specifying Duplex Systems for more information. 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.

Gusset plates shall not be spaced closer than 36 in. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents.

The requirements for finish, appearance, and adherence are identical to those in the other main standards. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. awtm

The weld bead will not eliminate all incidents of cracking but will greatly reduce the likelihood of cracking. Grease or oil becomes volatile at the galvanizing temperature and will generate gas which will prevent zinc from sealing the contact edges. This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, astj bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.


It is informational only and not an official part of the awtm the full atm of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. This heating asm cause discoloration of the galvanized coating near the heated area. Within the text of this specification and where appropriate, SI units are shown in brackets. Assemblies should consist of elements of similar chemistry and surface condition. When the concrete cover is designed to be thin and the surface area of the galvanized part in the concrete is large, these escaping gas bubbles astmm cause rough concrete surfaces.

Any combination of these products can be assembled into a single fabrication and then hot-dip galvanized. Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining values in any way. 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.

Practice for Repair of Damaged and Z385 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, a835 uncoated areas atm after initial hot-dip galvanizing. Warpage and Distortion 8. In addition, a layer of the molten zinc adheres to the surface of the compound layers as the steel is withdrawn from wstm galvanizing bath.

While tapping or retapping after galvanizing results in uncoated female threads, the zinc coating on the engaged male thread will retard corrosion of both components. The material categories covered in the specification include structural steel and plate, strips and bars, pipes and tubing, and wires. There is also evidence that these coatings are subject to a premature red staining in atmospheric exposure; however, this staining has been found not to be associated with corrosion of the substrate steel.


Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. This should be accounted for in the critical dimension design. If rebar is bent fabricated after the galvanized coating is applied and any flaking or cracking occurs, it is not rejectable.

Also, the combination of two different steel types or thicknesses in one item may result in a nonuniform galvanizing finish. This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes.

Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. Permission rights to photocopy the standard may also be secured from the ASTM website www.

ASTM-A | Ahmed Negm –

Recent studies have shown that even in cases where the silicon and phosphorous are individually held to desirable limits, a combined effect between them can produce a coating as shown in Fig. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Scope zinc, resulting in the formation of several iron-zinc compound layers, for example, gamma not always visible microscopicallydelta, and zeta in Fig.

The reaction between zinc metal and concrete water solution can release small quantities of hydrogen gas bubbles. First, the specification details the coating thickness requirements based on bar size.
