Test Method F is a recognized veri? My research is leading me to believe that ASTM F M both inch and metric are the xstm standards I need; but wstm those have over grades listed! My company uses fasteners in the most simple sense–like the kind of fasteners you buy in the bulk bin at the local hardware store. Threaded Tip, 3 0. Refer to Appendix X3 as a guideline for the tolerances of the various thread sizes and classes and the coating thickness they will accommodate.

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

Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination awtm the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such f9141m, are entirely their own responsibility.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Screw threads that are speci? However the following restrictions apply: From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: Toby asgm Thanks for boiling it down for me. 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. 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.

Measuring coating thickness on the threaded portion of a fastener is possible but impractical for in-process quality control veri?

ASTM F – Portland Bolt

Originally published as F — A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. It’s not possible to diagnose a finishing problem or the hazards of an operation via these pages.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads.

Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. Thick or thin local thickness in a location other than a signi? High current f941m increase hydrogen charging. The other dimensional characteristics shall be as speci? Ordering Information for Electroplating 5.


Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

Therefore, the application of a metallic coating by electrodeposition is not recommended for such fasteners.

Slight discoloration that results from baking, drying, or electrode contact during rack-plating, or all of these, as well as slight staining that results from rinsing shall not be cause for rejection.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. 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.

NOTE 1—Fasteners with a speci? In some of the process steps, notably the electrocleaning and electroplating steps, an electric current is applied to the group of items.

ASTM F1941

Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. For example, rather than specifying: 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.
