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.

This can 6 damage the external threads of fasteners. The local coating thickness on a part is a result of the electrical current density at that location. 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!

Toby — Thanks for boiling it down for me. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

Ashm 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 applying adequate process control procedures, such as those outlined in Appendix X4. Refer to Annex A1 for neutral salt spray performance requirements for zinc, zinc alloy and cadmium coatings.

Periodic inspections should be conducted according to a speci? I am getting really confused in the finishing section. ASTM does not r1941m any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. The test plan should be designed based upon the speci? This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every?


For this reason the control mechanism speci? The properties of the coatings shall conform to the ASTM standards for the individual?

ASTM F1941

That’s exactly what I needed. As the barrel is moved through the process steps, it is also rotated ast, that the individual items are constantly cascading over one another. Last previous edition F — The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling.

Originally published as F — When such areas are subject to minimum thickness requirements, the purchaser and ff1941m manufacturer shall recognize the necessity for either thicker deposits on other areas or special racking. Isn’t the color achieved by adding a dye and the corrosive resistance achieved through a aztm or thicker chromate? My follow up question would be, if the fasteners are coated with trivalent chromite adding the designation “T”why do the salt spray hours in the ASTM spec differ between any color chromate designation?

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

ASTM F – Portland Bolt

ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard. Threaded Tip, 3 0. The electrodeposited coating shall cover all surfaces and shall meet the following requirements: The values given in parentheses are for information only.

Asfm electrical continuity is maintained between the parts by the rack itself. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm. Thickness Designation 3 5 8 12 Minimum Thickness in.


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

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. All I want is a single spec to call out, to get the basic zinc-electroplated fastener.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Refer to Appendix X3 for further information on effects of coating on pitch diameter, allowances and tolerances for external and internal threads. The average current density is usually low enough such that the extremity-to-center coating thickness ratio is much lower than with barrel-plating. This phenomenon is d1941m with increasing length and decreasing diameter of the screw or bolt.

This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads. That standard should be consulted for more detailed information.

It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. The cascading action randomly exposes the surface of each individual piece to the process electrodes adtm also maintaining electrical continuity between all of the parts.

One of these should meet your needs.
