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/.

The local coating thickness on a part is a result of the electrical current density at that location.

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

Isn’t the color c1941m by adding a dye and the corrosive resistance achieved through a sealer or thicker chromate? F — 00 Standard Speci?

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. Refer to Appendix X3 as a guideline for the t1941m of the various thread sizes and classes and the coating thickness they will accommodate.

With normal methods for depositing metallic coatings from aqueous solutions, there is a risk of delayed failure due to hydrogen embrittlement for case hardened fasteners and fasteners having a hardness 40 HRC or above.

The properties of the coatings shall conform to the ASTM standards for the individual? NOTE 1—Fasteners with a speci?

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

Periodic inspections should be conducted according to a speci? A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. The electrical continuity is maintained between the parts by the rack itself. Measuring coating thickness on the threaded f141m of a fastener is possible but impractical for in-process quality control veri? Changing the last letter to a B means that the chromate is blue-bright transparent with a bluish tinge and slight Iridescence or C means that it is yellow yellow iridescent.


If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. In some of the process steps, notably the electrocleaning and asym steps, an electric current is applied to the group of items.

ASTM F1941

ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard. The test plan should be designed based upon the speci? All I want is a single spec to call out, to get the basic zinc-electroplated fastener.

This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings asstm threaded fasteners with metric screw threads.

Eight hours is considered a typical example of baking duration. Slight discoloration that results from baking, drying, or electrode contact during rack-plating, or all of these, as well f9141m slight staining that results from rinsing shall not be cause for rejection. I aztm getting really confused in the finishing section. 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.


This can 6 damage the external threads of fasteners. Baking to relieve hydrogen embrittlement must be performed prior to the application of the chromate? Refer to Appendix X3 for further information on effects of coating on pitch diameter, allowances and tolerances for external and internal threads.

Threaded F11941m, 3 0.

The rack is designed to move the group of items, together, through each of the process steps, allowing ready ingress and egress of processing solutions and rinses. This phenomenon is accentuated with increasing length and decreasing diameter of the screw or bolt. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Long screws and bolts have a length-to-diameter ratio greater than 5 but less than Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. 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.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. When such areas are subject to minimum thickness requirements, the purchaser and the manufacturer shall recognize the necessity for f194m thicker deposits on other areas or special racking.
