It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety astmm health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Custom Industrial Processing, Inc. Hot dip galvanising is generally more durable and sturdy than mechanically applied zinc layers. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!

Mechanical Plating & Galvanizing

Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Because mechanical plating is so uniform, you can save money by coating astn lower average thickness. Mechanical plated arts can be given post plate treatment of dichromate dye for color-coding and phosphate for improved paint adhesion and waxing.

Hydrogen embrittlement is a phenomenon which causes materials to lose their strength and become brittle. The mechanical plating process takes place in a tumbling barrel filled with tumbling media e.

The inch-pound equivalents of SI units are given for informational purposes. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Register now while it’s still free! Batch to batch conformity: Mechanical Galvanizing produces parts that are ready to use without any further processing steps. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Threaded peaks especially show no build-up plating thickness. Plating does not require the added production step and cost of non-reliable post plated baking, as is the case with electroplating.


It is informational only b6995 not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. Is there an ASTM that provides a standard for the high-build organic coating?

This makes mechanical plating an ideal process for plating flat stampings and b6955. Electroplating The main advantage of mechanical plating over electroplating is the elimination of hydrogen embrittlement. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Surface protection guide for steelwork exposed to atmospheric environments ht tp: The thickest coating classes are usually referred to as “mechanically galvanized”.

Because of the composite nature of mechanical coating, this naturally lubricated coating will not gall, producing more accurate torque-tension relationship.

ASTM B – Haydon BoltsHaydon Bolts

This mechanical plating process characteristically makes this technology an ideal choice for plating hardened steel springs. All tests results should comply with the given requirements.

The base metal is less chemically active s o that the coating corrodes first. For aastm thickness, mechanical galvanized is equal or superior to conventional galvanizing methods.

Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. All deposited coatings should have a bright uniform silvery appearance, and a matte to medium-bright luster.

Students Click Here Join Us! CIP offers two post-plating services: Eliminate retapping of units: Thickness depends awtm on the amount of zinc powder. Mechanical plating has the ability to plate sintered metal parts powder g695 without costly impregnation.

By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. They or other sharp points have uniform thickness you want in plating. Any metal that can be made into a fine powder can be mechanically plated, b6695 CIP specializes in zinc, tin, and aluminum. Also – My application are exposed structural steel members that are placed in GUAM heavy salt marine environmentwhich method would you use for corrosion protection OR if you know of a better way for corrosion protection, please share it.

This specification covers the requirements for zinc coatings that are mechanically deposited on iron or steel basis metals.

ASTM B – Portland Bolt

Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. Provide heavy-duty corrosion resistance: Some installations can increase stamping runs from the same die-sets and eliminate barrel or vibratory finishing steps in deburring. Uniformity of thickness depends on part size and shape with typically thinner deposits on edges and thicker deposits in recesses. The zinc coatings are classified according to thickness and identified into two types; as coated without supplementary treatments or with colored chromate conversion treatment.

Sacrificial metal coating is applied with coverage to all surfaces of the part to the corners recesses, threaded areas as well as to the flat, more exposed regions.

ASTM B695-04

Mechanical Galvanizing is a room temperature process that does not detemper heat-treated parts. Even if the axtm plating finish is scratched, there is still galvanic protection for the base metal.

We also work 6b95 both Type I as coated, without supplementary treatment and Type II with chromate conversion treatment B specifications for special processing needs. The Ability to plate parts, which tangle the glass impact media used in the process, tends to prevent parts from tangling.

Neither will be great for long-term marine exposure, I would suggest a high-build organic coating system probably with a zinc-based primer or thermal spray base layer.
