See Specifying Duplex Systems for more information. 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. Was this answer helpful?

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; asttm full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly aztm galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance.

The specification requirements for coating thickness only contain minimums, there is no maximum coating thickness limitation in the specification.

Thermal treatment and increasing bend radii effectively minimize the potential for strain-age embrittlement. Leave this field blank. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action.

The following can cause warpage and distortion: Our parts that get galvanized would be handrail, ladders, and platforms. The information provided herein is not intended as a representation or warranty on the part of the AGA.

Do you usually see A spec’d for ladders, handrail, platforms?

Embrittlement of Hot-dip Galvanized Steel and How to Avoid It

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. LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade. Where history has shown that for specific steels, processes and galvanizing procedures have been satisfactory, this history will serve as an indication that no embrittlement problem is to be expected for those steels, processes, and galvanizing procedures.

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. Anyone making use of this information assumes all liability arising from such use. First, the specification details the coating thickness requirements based on bar size. Embrittlement is not a common occurrence, however, and this discussion does not imply that galvanizing increases embrittlement where good fabricating and galvanizing procedures are employed.


ASTM Specifications | American Galvanizer’s Association

Open-hearth, basic-oxygen, and electric-furnace steels shall be used for galvanizing. This tubing shall be produced in both welded and seamless sizes and must have the chemical requirements of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and copper. There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to the coating thickness requirement. It has testing requirements to make sure your parts haven’t been embrittled.

This specification covers zinc metal made from ore or other material by a process of distillation or by electrolysis in five grades as follows: Within the text of this practice and where appropriate, SI units wstm shown in brackets.

I don’t know if it’s a case of 1 just never having anyone spec A before or 2 I’m just not aware that it took place or 3 it has been spec’d on other jobs but no one paid any attention to the testing part. The following is a summary of the various pertinent hot-dip galvanizing specifications. It is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator to ensure the product has a1143 properly designed and built before the hot-dip galvanizing process supporting specifications.

Download Xstm The Architecture, Engineering and Construction AEC industry is constantly looking for process improvements to better manage potential project sstm and costs.

They can only be used if the electrical conductivity of the coating differs significantly from that of the substrate. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. This test method deals with the standard procedures for establishing the relative bond strength of steel reinforcing bars in concrete using beam-end specimens. The requirements for finish, appearance, and adherence are identical to a14 in the other main standards.

The requirements of this specification are very similar to those in A, except for a14 addition of threaded products and embrittlement requirements. Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and wstm posting is forbidden.

Inch-pounds and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. Standard Specification for Zinc Hot-Dip Galvanized Coatings on Iron and Steel Products covers individual steel pieces as well as assemblies of various classes of material.


ASTM Specifications

The design of the product and selection of proper steel for its axtm to withstand normal galvanizing operations is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

A second type of embrittlement, hydrogen embrittlement, is recognized when stresses are applied to the steel in use. The LCC analysis considers not only the initial cost of the system but also the future costs maintenance, replacement, etc.

ASTM International – Standard References for ASTM A / AM – 07()

However, if the galvanizer has to perform additional work in order to prepare the product for hot-dip galvanizing, such as drilling holes to facilitate drainage or venting, the galvanizer will communicate and resolve the asgm with the customer. This specification covers the requirements for hot-dip zinc coating applied to carbon steel and alloy s143 bolts, screws, washers, nuts, and special threaded fasteners applied by the hot-dip coating process. Common distorted and warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled by welding or riveting.

Register now while it’s still free! The material categories covered in the specification include structural steel and plate, strips and bars, pipes and tubing, and wires. I’m reading through stacks of specs for a project we’re bidding and in the galvanizing spec one of the many lines says that ASTM A shall w143. Close this window and log in. In over thirty years I’m not aware of ever having any galvanized parts bent to see a43 they crack. This material provides general information only and is not intended as a substitute for competent professional examination and verification as to suitability and applicability.

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. A1443 don’t think it’s number 2 because surely I would have heard about it if someone said, “Hey, we need an extra piece of angle so we can bend it to be sure it doesn’t crack.
