A. ASTM F is for inch-based fasteners and ASTM FM is for metric fasteners, although the designations are identical between the two. The fastener industry should be made aware of an important recent development in the realm of. ASTM fastener standard specifications. ASTM F/.

Last previous edition F — 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?

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! Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. The extremities being the high current density areas receive the greatest coating thickness. Which finish to choose?

Although this risk can be managed by selecting raw materials suitable for the application of electrodeposited coatings and by using aastm methods of surface treatment and post heat-treatment bakingthe r1941m of hydrogen embrittlement cannot be completely eliminated. However the following restrictions apply: This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads.

In some of the process steps, notably the electrocleaning and electroplating steps, an electric current is applied to the group of items. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. My company uses fasteners in the most simple sense–like the kind of astmm you buy in the bulk bin at the local hardware store.


It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages. On an externally threaded fastener this occurs at the threaded tip. If heavier coatings are required allowance for the deposit buildup must be made during the manufacture of fasteners. In this process, quantities of an item are placed within a containment vessel, called a barrel.

ASTM F – Portland Bolt

Is there an acceptable way to demonstrate equivalence? Originally published as F — Eight hours is considered a typical example of baking duration. The local coating thickness on a part is a result of the electrical current density at that location. Long screws and bolts have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 but less than F19941m standard should be consulted for more detailed information. This phenomenon is accentuated with increasing length and decreasing diameter of the screw or bolt.

From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: 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.

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.

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 wstm adequate process control procedures, such as those outlined in Appendix X4.


Thick or thin local thickness in a location other than a signi? The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling. Refer to Appendix X3 as a guideline for the tolerances of the various thread sizes and classes and the coating thickness they will accommodate. To secure uniformity of results, samples shall be aged at room temperature for 24 h before being subjected to the salt spray test.

The properties of the coatings shall conform to the ASTM standards for the individual? This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every?

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Stay on Page Continue to Compass.

When such areas are subject to minimum thickness requirements, the purchaser and the manufacturer shall recognize the necessity for either thicker deposits on other areas or special racking.
