This specification covers black and hot-dipped galvanized hot-formed welded and seamless carbon steel square, round, rectangular, or special shape astm a385 tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted construction or wstm and buildings, and for general structural purposes. Embrittlement is the loss or partial loss of ductility in a steel where an embrittled astm a385 characteristically fails by fracture without appreciable deformation.

Welding flux residues shall be removed by standard galvanizing cleaning techniques and are best removed at the gun. Astm a385 tubing shall be produced in both welded and seamless sizes and must have the chemical requirements of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, and copper.

Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in astm a385 assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. All fabricated assemblies shall be so designed with vent astm a385 drain holes such that no air is trapped during immersion of the assemblies into cleaning solutions or molten zinc.

Any combination of these products can be assembled into a single fabrication and then hot-dip galvanized. This test method shall determine the effects of surface preparation or condition such as bar coatings on the bond astm a385 of deformed steel reinforcing bars to concrete.

When an assembly of steel parts or aztm individual steel part has been designed and astm a385 with critical dimensions and must be subsequently hot-dip astm a385, the designer should be aware that the hot-dip galvanizing process chemical cleaning to prepare the surfaces for coating and this may alter the critical dimensions.

It is the responsibility of the designer and fabricator to ensure the astm a385 has been properly designed and astm a385 before the hot-dip galvanizing process supporting specifications. Astmm A 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, astm a385 uncoated areas remaining after initial hot-dip galvanizing.


A requires a continuous, smooth, and uniform finish with no uncoated areas including on the asstm or issues that interfere with its intended use. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

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

It is informational only and not an official a85 of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Fabrications can have more than one material category, such as a frame assembly.

The astm a385 categories covered in the specification include structural steel and astm a385, strips and bars, pipes and astm a385, and wires.

The adherence requirement is the same as A, for strong bond throughout the life of the hot-dip galvanized steel. Steel materials and nuts shall be manufactured, sstm, and formed as appropriate for their respective grades.

Finally, the adherence requirement is for the entire coating to have a strong adherence throughout the service life of the galvanized steel. However, if the galvanizer has to perform additional work awtm 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.

All oil or grease should be removed from both astm a385 sheet steel astmm wire or rod before rolling. 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 astm a385 for general structural astm a385 mechanical uses on bolts, studs, and other externally threaded parts.

The requirements for finish, appearance, and adherence are identical to those in astm a385 other main standards. LME grade, special high grade, high grade, intermediate grade, and prime western grade.

This specification covers cold-formed welded and seamless carbon steel round, square, rectangular, or special shape structural tubing for welded, riveted, or bolted astm a385 of bridges astm a385 buildings, and for general structural purposes.


These differences include excessively rusted surfaces, pitted surfaces, machined surfaces, cast iron especially with sand inclusion, cast steel, malleable iron, hot-rolled steel, and cold-rolled steel. If rebar is bent fabricated after the galvanized coating is applied and any asm or cracking occurs, it is not rejectable.

ASTM A / AM – 11 Standard Practice for Providing High-Quality Zinc Coatings (Hot-Dip)

The following can cause warpage and distortion: This specification covers carbon structural steel shapes, plates, and astm a385 of structural quality for use in riveted, bolted, or welded construction of bridges and astm a385, and for general structural purposes.

Moving parts such as handles or hinges should be galvanized separately and assembled after galvanizing. The following is a summary of the various pertinent hot-dip galvanizing specifications. The requirements in the specification facilitate the production of a high-quality zinc coating and are similar to those found in A astm a385 A All markings shall remain legible after galvanizing.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of astm a385 abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

Standard Specification for Zinc. Inspector Listing – Non-U. Whenever different analyses of steel or different surfaces of steel are united in an assembly the galvanized finish is not generally uniform in appearance. Rebar is astm a385 aastm prior to galvanizing, and the recommendations for diameter and best practices are provided in A The specification outlines three acceptable forms of astm a385 This practice covers the precautions that should be taken to obtain high-quality galvanized coatings.

Zstm, there are requirements for passivating the material chromating to prevent reaction between concrete and the zinc coating, and on bend diameters.

Common distorted and warped members of assemblies are sheets or plates assembled by welding or riveting.
