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 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 average current density is usually low g1941 such that the extremity-to-center coating thickness ratio is much lower than with barrel-plating. The coating material, coating thickness, chromate finish, and trivalent chromite finish shall be selected and designated.

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! Although this risk f19411 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.

It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. Thick or thin local thickness in a location other g1941 a signi?


The barrel is designed to move the group of items, together, through each of the process steps, allowing t1941 ingress and egress of processing solutions and rinses.

Eight hours is considered a typical example asm baking duration. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

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

Coating thickness values are based on the tolerances for 1A and 2A external Uni? Long screws and f19941 have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 but less than A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

Refer to Appendix X1. Test Method F is a recognized veri? For this reason the control mechanism speci?

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The chromate finish letter E designates a black color. Is there an acceptable way to demonstrate equivalence?

ASTM F1941

The electrical continuity is maintained between the parts by the rack itself. With normal methods for depositing metallic coatings from aqueous solutions, there is a aastm of delayed failure due to hydrogen embrittlement for case hardened fasteners and fasteners having a hardness 40 HRC or above.

Diameter Din.

The coating must not cause the basic thread size to be transgressed by either the internal or external threads. 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.


It specifies coating thickness, supplementary hexavalent chromate or non-hexavalent conversion coatings, corrosion resistance, precautions for managing the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen embrittlement relief ff1941 high-strength and surface-hardened fasteners. For internally threaded fasteners barrel-plating is generally suitable. That’s exactly what I needed.

Thickness Designation 3 5 8 12 Minimum Thickness in. In some of the process steps, notably the electrocleaning and electroplating steps, an electric current is applied to the group of items. Periodic inspections should be conducted according to a speci? 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.

My company uses fasteners in the most simple sense–like the kind of fasteners you buy in the bulk bin at the local hardware store. Toby — Thanks for boiling it down for me.

It should be noted that modi? Asym values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. Which finish to choose?
