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.

The test methods for determining the coating thickness are de? As the barrel is moved through the process steps, it is also rotated such that the individual items are constantly cascading over one another.
The coating must not cause the basic thread size to be transgressed by either d1941 internal or external threads. Therefore, the application of a metallic coating by electrodeposition is not recommended for such fasteners. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is my understanding that the darker colors are a naturally occurring process due to the hexavalent chromium and provide greater corrosion resistance.
The test plan should be designed based upon the speci? Eight hours is considered a typical example of baking duration. Threaded Tip, 3 0.
December 9, Q. 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.
The effect of thread damage is worse on heavy? It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory astk prior to use.
With normal methods for depositing metallic coatings from aqueous solutions, there is a risk of delayed failure due to hydrogen embrittlement for case hardened fasteners and fasteners having a hardness 40 HRC or above.
ASTM F – Portland Bolt
It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as f1491 the applicability of each process. Thick or thin local thickness in a location other than a signi? Periodic inspections should be conducted according to a speci? The other dimensional characteristics shall be as speci? This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
That’s exactly what I needed. For this reason the control mechanism speci? The values stated in f941 system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. See Section 10 and Appendix X1. F — 00 C1941 Speci?
This phenomenon is accentuated with increasing length and decreasing diameter of the screw or bolt. 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.
Screw threads that are speci? The barrel is designed to move the group of items, together, through each of the process steps, allowing ready ingress and egress of processing solutions and rinses. Corrosion resistance and embrittlement of coatings shall be determined by performing mechanical tests. High current densities increase hydrogen charging.
For internally threaded fasteners barrel-plating is wstm suitable. My follow up question would be, if the fasteners are coated with trivalent chromite adding the designation “T”why do the salt spray hours in the ASTM spec differ between any color chromate designation? This applies to the following cases: Special processing is normally required for bolts with a ratio greater than 10 in order to minimize the extremity-to-center thickness ratio.
ASTM / ASME spec F1941 for Zinc Plating … Which finish to choose?
NOTE 2—With proper care many steel fasteners can be plated without baking by correlating process conditions to the susceptibility of the fastener material to hydrogen embrittlement, and by applying adequate process control aastm, such as those outlined in Appendix X4.
The external thread allowance may thus be used to accommodate the coating thickness on threaded fasteners, provided the maximum coating thickness is no more than 1? Is there an acceptable way to demonstrate equivalence? From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: For example, rather than specifying: It’s not possible to r1941 a finishing problem or the ast of an operation via these pages.
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.
NOTE 1—Fasteners with a speci? My research is leading me to believe that ASTM F M both inch and metric are the two standards I need; but even those have over grades listed!
Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.
Baking to relieve hydrogen embrittlement must be performed prior to the application of the chromate? On an externally threaded fastener aatm occurs at the threaded tip. The rack is designed to move the group of items, together, through each of the process steps, allowing ready ingress and egress of processing solutions and rinses. Refer to Appendix X3 as a guideline for the tolerances of the various thread sizes and classes and the coating thickness they will accommodate.
