Fastener Committee Approves New Zinc Coating Standard

ASTM International Committee F16 on Fasteners has recently approved an important new standard that deals with coated threaded fasteners and washers by hot-dip zinc galvanizing. The standard,
F 2329, Specification for Zinc Coating, Hot-Dip, Requirements for Application to Carbon and Alloy Steel Bolts, Screws, Washers, Nuts and Special Threaded Fasteners, is under the jurisdiction of Subcommittee F16.03 on Coatings on Fasteners.

According to Salim Brahimi, F16 member and president, IBECA Technologies Corp., F 2329 was developed to complement ASTM A 153/A 153M, Specification for Zinc Coating (Hot-Dip) on Iron and Steel Hardware. While Specification A 153/A 153M addresses the processing parameters and general requirements of hot-dip galvanizing, ASTM F 2329 addresses concerns and requirements that are specific to the coating of threaded fasteners.

“This standard is an important milestone in the path embarked upon by Committee F16 to assume and maintain jurisdiction over coating standards that specifically address the concerns of the fastener industry,” says Brahimi, IBECA Technologies Corp. //
