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.

Diameter Dv1941. It is the responsibility of the user of astk standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

It assumes that the external thread pitch diameter is at the maximum and that the internal thread pitch diameter is at the minimum of the tolerance see Fig. Baking to relieve hydrogen embrittlement must be performed prior to the application of the chromate? The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling.

It should be noted that modi?

Toby — Thanks for boiling it down for me. This applies to the following cases: I am getting really confused in the finishing section. The values given in parentheses are for information only. Changing the last letter to a B means that the chromate is blue-bright transparent with a bluish tinge and slight Iridescence or C means that it is yellow yellow iridescent. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of asgm standard.

For example, rather than specifying: On an externally threaded fastener this occurs at the threaded tip. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.


ASTM F – Portland Bolt

Refer to Appendix X1. The appearance of 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.

Threaded Tip, 3 0. Slight discoloration that results from baking, drying, or electrode contact during rack-plating, or all of these, as well as slight staining that results from rinsing shall not be cause for rejection.

For internally threaded fasteners barrel-plating is generally suitable. That’s exactly what I needed. 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.

F — 00 Standard Speci?

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

Is there an acceptable way to demonstrate equivalence? Which finish to choose? This can 6 damage the external threads of fasteners. To secure uniformity of results, samples shall be aged at room temperature for 24 h before being subjected to the salt spray test.

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

The electrical continuity is maintained between the parts by the rack itself. Test Method F is a recognized veri? Ordering Information for Electroplating 5. Although this risk satm be managed by selecting raw materials suitable for the application of electrodeposited coatings and by using modern methods of surface treatment and post heat-treatment bakingthe risk of hydrogen embrittlement cannot be completely eliminated.

In contrast, the center or recesses such as the bottom of the threads, which are the low current density areas, receive the lowest coating thickness. Thickness Designation 3 5 8 12 Minimum Thickness f141. ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.


The test asrm should be designed based upon the speci? The testing frequency should initially establish and subsequently verify over time, the ability of a process to produce parts that do not have the potential for hydrogen embrittlement.

ASTM F1941

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. Current edition approved Jan.

The chromate finish letter E designates a black color.

If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, asmt the address shown below. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. All information presented is for general reference and ast not represent a professional opinion nor the xstm of an author’s employer. We do not specify specific plating specs; we simply use the general name. Long screws and bolts have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 but less than The average current density is usually low enough such that the extremity-to-center coating thickness ratio is much lower than with barrel-plating.

Special processing is normally required for bolts with a ratio greater than 10 in order to minimize the extremity-to-center thickness ratio.
