This specification covers steel reinforcing bars, zinc-coated (galvanized) by the continuous hot-dip process in cut lengths or coils.
The continuous hot-dip process is a newer technology for coating steel reinforcing bars with zinc. Thus, a consensus specification is needed for steel reinforcing bars that are coated by this coating process. Sub. A01.05 expects adoption of the new ASTM specification in design standards, e.g., the American Concrete Institute's Building Code (ACI 318), by AASHTO, and by other agencies and standards-writing organizations in their design and construction standards.
