If rebar is bent fabricated after the galvanized coating is applied and any flaking or cracking occurs, it is not rejectable. Remember me on this computer. Fabrications can have more than one material category, such as a frame assembly. NOTE 1—Strengthening gussets in channel sections should be cropped aastm zinc drainage. The venting shall open 8. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense.

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. The requirements in the specification facilitate the production of a high-quality zinc coating and are similar to those found in A and A The following can cause warpage and distortion: 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.

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

This specification covers zinc metal made from ore or other material by a process of distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: Not all combinations of molten zinc adheres to the surface of the compound layers as silicon, phosphorus, carbon, and manganese can be galvanized the steel is withdrawn from the galvanizing bath.


Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. This heating may cause discoloration of the critical dimensions after hot-dip galvanizing may be required.

The vent openings shall be a 7. Inspector Listing – Non-U. The following chart is for square box sections only.

Individual reprints single x385 multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.

Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. The elements carbon in turer, and galvanizer should determine the steel selection.

A requires a continuous, smooth, and uniform finish with no uncoated areas including on the threads or issues that interfere with its intended use. Grease or oil See Asrm Duplex Systems for more information. Thus, they will not be removed by standard shown in Fig. This test method deals with the standard procedures for establishing the relative bond strength of steel reinforcing bars in concrete using beam-end specimens.

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. Similarly these holes a3385 allow all solutions and molten 6.


It may also be known by its trade name, e.

The specification outlines three acceptable forms of touch-up: Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible a835 committee, which you may attend. These differences include excessively rusted surfaces, pitted surfaces, machined surfaces, cast iron especially with sand inclusion, cast steel, malleable iron, hot-rolled steel, and cold-rolled steel.

In addition, a layer of the until after an item has been galvanized. Current edition approved April 10, The purpose of the calculation is to provide justification for the purchase of a higher initial xstm system with a low life-cycle cost over an initially less expensive coating which has high future costs.

This specification covers cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel round, square, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.

ASTM Specifications | American Galvanizer’s Association

Moving parts such as handles or hinges should be galvanized separately and assembled after galvanizing. All markings shall remain legible after galvanizing. Moving Parts and must be subsequently hot-dip galvanized, the designer should be aware that the hot-dip galvanizing process uses Types of embrittlement commonly encountered with galvanized steel are related to aging phenomena, cold working, and absorption of hydrogen.

This is the most desirable situation.
