If rebar is bent fabricated after the galvanized coating is applied and any flaking or cracking occurs, it is not rejectable.

This practice is applicable to chromate coatings of the colorless both one and two-dipiridescent yellow or bronze, olive drab, black, colorless anodic, yellow or black anodic types, and of the dyed variety, when applied to surfaces of electrodeposited zinc, mechanically deposited zinc, hot-dipped zinc, rolled asgm, electrodeposited cadmium, or mechanically deposited coatings.

The design of the product and selection of proper steel for its suitability to withstand normal galvanizing operations is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator. Skip to main content. In the case of columns with end plates Fig. The material categories covered in the specification include structural steel and plate, strips and bars, pipes and tubing, and wires.

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 zstm issue with the customer.

However, the AGA does provide a compilation of specifications pertinent to galvanizing. The following can cause warpage and distortion: Steel Selection normal coatings. Gusset plates shall not be spaced closer than 36 in.

Weld Flux Removal and Welding Rods pressures when heated to the galvanizing temperature. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. All fabricated assemblies shall be so designed with vent and drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc.


In box sections Fig. Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. A — 03 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings Hot-Dip 1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation A ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision.

For rectangular sections, calculate required area and check with galvanizer for positioning of openings. In addition, a center hole shall be provided so that tapping of the nut that is required for proper fit. This should be accounted for in the critical be necessary to post heat these parts in order to have them dimension design. 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.

When an assembly of steel parts or an individual steel part has been designed and fabricated with critical dimensions and must be subsequently hot-dip galvanized, the designer should be aware that the hot-dip galvanizing process chemical cleaning to prepare the surfaces for coating and this may alter the critical dimensions.

What are the differences between ASTM A123/A123M and ASTM A385?

Referenced Documents have a mottled or dull gray appearance. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents.

This practice covers the precautions that should be taken to obtain high-quality galvanized coatings. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel.

Marking for Identification Assemblies should consist of elements of similar chemistry and surface condition. The experience of the steel supplier, designer, manufac- an influence on the coating structure. Purchase a copy from the AGA, or contact your local galvanizer.

Sometimes, a large surface may have A Practice for Safeguarding Against Warpage and Dis- adjacent areas of matte finish and bright finish leading to a tortion During Aetm Galvanizing of Steel Assemblies2 mottled appearance. Such uncoated surfaces cause a rust staining after exposure to 4.


This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes. 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.

Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen. Similarly these holes shall allow all solutions and molten 6. Remember me on this computer. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every five years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn.

A requires a continuous, smooth, and uniform finish with no uncoated areas including on the threads or issues that interfere with its intended use. NOTE 1—Strengthening gussets in channel sections should be cropped for zinc drainage.

Recent studies have shown that even in 1. The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel.

LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade. This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and dimensional requirements for eight grades Grades O, A, B, C, D, DH, C3, and DH3 ast carbon and alloy steel nuts for general structural and mechanical uses on bolts, studs, and other externally threaded parts.
