    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers zinc master alloys which are used in hot dip galvanizing for the purpose of adjusting the concentration of certain alloying elements in the molten zinc bath. Table 1 covers the chemical composition of these materials which include six master alloys of zinc-aluminum (brightener) and one master alloy of zinc-antimony.
