Abstract

This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with metric screw threads. It specifies coating thickness, supplementary hexavalent chromate or trivalent chromite finishes, corrosion resistance, precautions for managing the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen embrittlement relief for high-strength and surface-hardened fasteners. It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process. The coating material, coating thickness, chromate finish, and trivalent chromite finish shall be selected and designated. The electrodeposited coating shall cover all surfaces and shall meet the following requirements: the coating metal deposit shall be bright or semibright, smooth, fine grained, adherent and uniform in appearance; the coating shall be free of blisters, pits, nodules, roughness, cracks, unplated areas, and other defects that will affect the function of the coating; and the coating shall not be stained, discolored or exhibit any evidence of white or red corrosion products. Slight discoloration that results from baking, drying, or electrode contact during rack-plating, or all of these, as well as slight staining that results from rinsing shall not be cause for rejection. Corrosion resistance and embrittlement of coatings shall be determined by performing mechanical tests.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers application, performance and dimensional requirements for electrodeposited coatings on threaded fasteners with unified inch and metric screw threads, but it may also be applied to other threaded parts and non-threaded parts such as washers and pins. It specifies coating thickness, supplementary hexavalent chromate or non-hexavalent conversion coatings, corrosion resistance, precautions for managing the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and hydrogen embrittlement relief for high-strength and surface-hardened fasteners. It also highlights the differences between barrel and rack plating and makes recommendations as to the applicability of each process.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.3 Terms used in this specification are defined in Terminology F1789.

1.4 The following precautionary statement pertains to the test method portion only, Section 9, of this specification: 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.
