Assemblies of Different Materials or Different Surfaces 5. A — w385 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.

The venting shall open 8. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm. 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 axtm communicate and resolve the issue with the customer.

Traditionally however, steel grating has been 4. Weld Flux Removal and Welding Rods pressures when heated to the galvanizing temperature. ASTM A 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.


Should this occur on screws, scale removal prior to shall be vented. Help Center Find new research papers in: This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, and bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Internal Gussets—Should be spaced a minimum of 36 in. 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.

However, there are a few additional requirements for galvanized rebar. They can only be used if the electrical conductivity of the coating differs significantly from that of the substrate. Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss of ductility in a steel where an embrittled product characteristically fails astn fracture without appreciable deformation.


This specification covers the requirements for hot-dip zinc coating applied to carbon steel and alloy steel astj, screws, washers, nuts, and special threaded fasteners applied by the hot-dip coating process.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Originally approved in The requirements in the specification facilitate the production of a high-quality zinc coating and are similar to those found in A and A Rebar is commonly bent prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A This specification covers black and hot-dipped galvanized hot-formed welded and seamless carbon steel square, round, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction or bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.

Last previous edition approved in as A — Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining values in any way. All fabricated assemblies shall be designed with vent and drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc.
