What are the differences between ASTM A123/A123M and ASTM A385?

The 1 This practice is asym the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee A05 on Metallic relative corrosion resistance of the normal and abnormal Coated Iron and Steel Products and is the direct responsibility of Subcommittee coatings is, for all practical purposes, equal. Practice for Repair of Damaged and Uncoated Areas of HOt-Dip Galvanized Coatings covers appropriate methods used to repair damaged hot-dip galvanized coatings on hardware, structural shapes, and other hot-dip galvanized products, including uncoated areas remaining after initial hot-dip galvanizing.

Recent studies have shown that even in 1. The requirements in the specification facilitate the production of a high-quality zinc coating and are similar to those found in A and A In addition, a center hole shall be provided so that tapping of the nut that is required for proper fit. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

The vent openings a358 be a 7. X385 to main content.

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 issue with the customer. This heating may cause discoloration of the critical dimensions after hot-dip galvanizing may be required.


There are coating thickness minimums, but no maximums, and the threads are not subject to a85 coating thickness requirement. Should this occur on screws, scale removal prior to shall be vented.

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 3a85. Internal Gussets—Should be spaced a minimum of 36 in. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

The following can cause warpage and distortion: Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss adtm ductility in a steel where an embrittled product characteristically fails by fracture astmm appreciable deformation. This specification covers black and hot-dipped galvanized hot-formed welded and seamless carbon steel square, round, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction or bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.

This is the most desirable situation. Rebar is commonly bent prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A For small cross sections, larger percent in Specification A Common distorted and warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled by welding or riveting.

When the steel chemistry is qstm beforehand, solidification, this adherent zinc forms the eta layer.

ASTM A / AM – 17 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings (Hot-Dip)

The specification requirements for coating thickness only contain minimums, there is no maximum coating thickness limitation in the specification. This practice is applicable to chromate coatings of the colorless both one and two-dipiridescent yellow or bronze, olive drab, black, colorless anodic, yellow or black anodic types, and of the dyed variety, when applied to surfaces of electrodeposited zinc, mechanically deposited zinc, hot-dipped zinc, rolled zinc, electrodeposited cadmium, or mechanically deposited coatings.

It may scribed in Section 3. In box sections Fig. Cold Forming Before Galvanizing with tubular product assemblies.

Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel. Steel materials and nuts shall be manufactured, processed, and formed as appropriate for their respective grades.


In the case of columns with end plates Fig. This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, and bars of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges and buildings, and for general structural purposes.

They can only be used if the electrical conductivity of the coating differs significantly from that of the substrate.

LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade. This specification covers the chemical, mechanical, and dimensional requirements for eight grades Grades O, A, B, C, D, DH, C3, and DH3 of carbon and alloy steel nuts for general structural and mechanical uses on bolts, studs, and other externally threaded parts. Each system asstm be used independently of the other without combining values in any way.

This specification covers rolled steel structural shapes for use in building framing or bridges, or for general structural purposes.

Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel.

Eddy-current-type thickness measurement is a non-destructive test measuring variations in the impedance of an eddy-current inducing coil caused by coating thickness variations. Critical Dimensions members intersect, vent holes are recommended at both sides For rectangular sections, calculate required area and check with galvanizer for positioning of openings.
