Depending on the amount of corrosive forces at work in the application, F may be sufficient, but it f11136 not. Serge- We have very little experience with Dacromet coating.

But there are some doubts. One year after installation the bolts are rusting.

This fastener is made from weathering steel which is inherently corrosion resistant. Consulting a structural engineer involved on the project is always the best solution. Since the asfm are pre-tensioned, will there be any issues with Magni with regard to pre-tensioning i. That said, I do not know much about fluorocarbon coatings and how f11336 are v1136. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

We also see no issues with pre-tensioning. Is fluorocarbon coating acceptable to A bolts for corrosion prevention? Normally where I see F specified is in applications with higher strength fasteners that cannot be hot-dip galvanized, such as ASTM A heavy hex bolts. Bandana- There are no issues mixing coatings with DTI washers. 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.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Parham- We cannot make wstm recommendations, but I can say that painting A bolts is quite common.


High Strength Bolts Coatings – Portland Bolt

If so, did the tension will be higher? Alkaline cleaning or vapor degreasing is required along with shot blasting to remove rust or scale. Since the Dacromet and Magni will be in contact with one another, Are they compatible with one another? We assumed that the properties on the bolts is not affected but the final tension might be change? No metric equivalents are presented in this specification. Due to hydrogen embrittlement concerns ASTM recommends against hot-dip galvanizingmechanical deposition, or electroplating with zinc or other metallic coatings on high strength bolts v1136 tensile strengths that exceed ksi.

Protective Coatings ASTM recommends that if a protective coating is required for A bolts, one of two approved coatings is recommended.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Although hot-dip galvanize provides high thickness level barrier protection 2 mils for substrates, it is not approved for use on high strength bolts because hot dip galvanize is susceptible of hydrogen embrittlement and cracking of fasteners that can result out in the field. I do not have any friction coefficient information on Magniso I do not know how much the f11136 will be affected.

As for the thickness of both coatings, F grade 3 specified a coating thickness of 0. They were used to in flange type splices of two tubular monopole sections.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

Your first question, is it appropriate to specify ASTM F Grade 3would be best answered by an engineer familiar with the coating and the application. Jovito- We would be happy to f136 your specific bolting needs if you want to send us a list of the bolts you are looking for.


Asgm Grade 3, commonly known as Dacromet. What corrosion-resistant coatings are available for high-strength over ksi bolts? The bolts and nuts are already coated with Dacromet and the proposal is to coat the DTI washers with Magni Is the coating that fragile? The basecoat can contain chrome C or be non-chrome NC. Since we are using A bolts in our structure, we have to propose a replacement.

High Strength Bolts Coatings

So what are the alternatives to provide corrosion resistance for A structural bolts? Hi, Recently we were informed that Dacromet coating is being phased out. However, these fasteners are not as readily available in the marketplace as A Type 1. It is required that the bolt and nut are coated by the same process, but the washer can be an alternate coating. The corrosion protection offered by F in those cases would be superior to nothing at all.

Pierre-Paul — The properties of the bolt and the final tension should not be impacted. The tightening torque may vary from plain finish or other coatings, but the bolt should still function the same.

I am using Ast, grade BC and need a smooth finish with minimal irregularities. We are not sure how fragile the coating is during installation. Your email address will not be published.
