For internally threaded fasteners barrel-plating is generally suitable.

Refer to Appendix X3 as a guideline for the tolerances of the various thread sizes and classes and the coating thickness they will accommodate. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Refer to Appendix X1. F1941, 1—Fasteners with a speci? Coating thickness values are based on the tolerances for 1A and 2A external Uni?

It is satm responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. High current densities increase hydrogen charging. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

ASTM F1941

Originally published as F — 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. This applies to the following cases: This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.


The coating must not cause the basic thread size to be transgressed by either the internal or external threads. Threaded Tip, 3 0. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The chromate finish letter R1941m designates a black color.

It is my understanding that the darker colors are a naturally occurring process due to the hexavalent chromium and provide greater corrosion resistance. In this process, quantities of an item are placed within a containment vessel, called a barrel. December 9, Q. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely d1941m own responsibility.

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

The average current density is usually low enough such that the extremity-to-center coating thickness ratio is much lower than with barrel-plating. Thickness Designation 3 5 8 12 Minimum Thickness in.

The coating material, coating thickness, chromate finish, and trivalent chromite finish shall be selected and designated. F — 00 Standard Speci? This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Ordering Information for Electroplating 5. 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. Therefore, the application f1941j a metallic coating by electrodeposition is not recommended for such fasteners.

However, if not designated, signi? On an externally threaded fastener this occurs at the threaded tip. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The properties of the coatings shall conform to the ASTM standards for the individual? Nonmagnetic Coatings on Magnetic Basis Metals. When such areas are subject to minimum thickness requirements, the purchaser and the manufacturer shall recognize the necessity for either thicker deposits on other areas or special racking.


Screw threads that are speci? The external thread damage is also minimized in comparison to barrel-plating due to the absence of tumbling. In some of the process steps, notably the electrocleaning and electroplating steps, an electric current is applied to the group of items. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. 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.

However the following restrictions apply: From beautiful Pine Beach New Jersey: The extremities being the high current density areas receive the greatest coating thickness. This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads.
