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/. ASTM F/FM: Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings on Mechanical Fasteners, Inch and Metric.

The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling. Which finish to choose? Thank you for your assistance.

If the size of the fastener is large enough to economically use the rack-plating process, then the latter shall be used to obtain this thickness requirement. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make r1941m views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

ASTM F1941

Threaded Tip, 3 0. The average current density is usually low enough such that the extremity-to-center coating thickness ratio is much lower than with barrel-plating. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

It specifies coating thickness, supplementary hexavalent chromate or trivalent chromite finishes, corrosion resistance, precautions for managing the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen embrittlement relief for high-strength and surface-hardened fasteners. This abstract f1941j a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Coating thickness values are based on the tolerances for 1A and 2A external Uni? Corrosion resistance and embrittlement of coatings shall be determined by performing mechanical tests. In some of the 1f941m steps, notably the electrocleaning and electroplating steps, an electric current is applied to the group of items. 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.


However the following restrictions apply: 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 values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

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

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Test Method F is a recognized veri? Diameter Din. This applies to the following cases: This phenomenon is accentuated with increasing length and decreasing diameter of the screw or bolt.

ASTM F – Portland Bolt

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.

Screw threads that are speci? This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Refer to Annex A1 for neutral salt spray performance requirements for zinc, zinc alloy and cadmium coatings.

All I want is a single spec to call out, to get the basic zinc-electroplated fastener. In this process, quantities of an item are placed on a support, called a rack. Last previous edition F — This astj covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads.

ASTM / ASME spec F1941 for Zinc Plating … Which finish to choose?

Long screws and bolts have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 qstm less than F19411m exactly what I needed. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. I am getting really confused in the finishing section.


Therefore, the application of a metallic coating by electrodeposition is not recommended for such fasteners. We do not specify specific plating specs; we simply use the general name. From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: 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. The properties of the coatings shall conform to the ASTM standards for the individual?

The coating material, coating thickness, chromate finish, and trivalent chromite finish shall f11941m selected and designated.

Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

It should be noted that modi? The external thread allowance may thus be used to accommodate the coating thickness on threaded fasteners, f19441m the xstm coating thickness is no more than 1?
