Active Standard ASTM A929 / A929M | Developed by Subcommittee: A05.11
Book of Standards Volume: 01.06
Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers steel sheets used in the manufacture of corrugated steel pipe for storm sewers, culverts, drains, and similar uses. The sheet is metallic coated by the hot-dip process. Material for this use is furnished in coils, flat in cut lengths. The Zn-5A1-MM coating is available in two coating classes, the Class A which are minimized coating structure and Class B which are regular coating structure. The base metal cast or product analyses shall conform to the required chemical compositions for sulfur, and sum of carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur and silicon. The zinc coating, zinc-aluminum-mischmetal alloy coating, aluminum-zinc alloy coating, aluminum coating type 2 and aluminum coating type 1 shall conform to the required coating bath composition. The metallic coating shall conform to the required mechanical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength and elongation.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. 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.
1.1 This specification covers steel sheet used in the manufacture of corrugated steel pipe for storm sewers, culverts, drains, and similar uses. The sheet is metallic coated by the hot-dip process. Material for this use is furnished in coils, flat in cut lengths, and corrugated in cut lengths. Many metallic coated materials are covered in this material specification. Users must determine which product best serves their needs. Five different metallic coatings are included:
1.1.1 Zinc-coated (galvanized),
1.1.2 Zinc-5 % aluminum-Mischmetal (Zn-5Al-MM) alloy coated,
1.1.3 55 % aluminum-zinc (55Al-Zn) alloy coated,
1.1.4 Aluminum-coated Type 2 (aluminized Type 2), and
1.1.5 Aluminum-coated Type 1 (aluminized Type 1).
1.2 Zinc-coated sheet is available in two coating weights [masses]. Other metallic coatings are available in one coating weight [mass] only.
1.3 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
