    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These test methods cover independently the chemical analysis of each surface of zinc-nickel alloy electrolytically coated on steel sheet.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E01 on Analytical Chemistry for Metals, Ores, and Related Materials, these test methods were withdrawn in March 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover independently the chemical analysis of each surface of zinc-nickel alloy electrolytically coated on steel sheet. The coatings have chemical compositions within the following limits:

    AnalyteConcentration Range
    Coating mass0.0 to 80 g/m2
    Nickel7.0 to 17.0 %

    1.2 These test methods are in the following sections:

    Sections
    Coating mass, by the Weigh-Strip-Weigh Method
    (20.0 to 45.0 g/m2)
    10-20
    Nickel by the Atomic Absorption Method (11.0 to 13.5 %
    of Coating mass Ranging from 20 to 45 g/m2)
    21-31

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. In some cases, exceptions allowed in Practice are also used.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
