ASTM B633 Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings of Zinc on Iron and Steel
This method ASTM B 633 covers the specification for coatings to waive the defects on materials such as scratches, porosity, pits, inclusions, cracks, roll marks, and die marks, which may adversely affect the appearance and performance of coatings applied.
In ASTM B633 Specification, use to determine material and process requirements for electrodeposited zinc coatings applied to iron or steel articles to protect them from corrosion. It does not cover continuous processes for electrodeposited zinc-coated steel wire or sheet.
In ASTM B633 Electrodeposit Coatings must be non-alloyed zinc produced by electrodeposition. For the satisfactory adhesion and corrosion resistance performance of the coatings, the base material must be thoroughly clean. After cleaning the base metal to reduce the risk of hydrogen embrittlement pre-coating treatment and post coating treatment for iron and steel is done. This includes heating the material to relieve stress in pre-coating treatment and baking of material to reduce hydrogen embrittlement in post coating treatment. Then reactive treatment is done in which the electroplated surface is passivated. Supplementary treatments are also given if needed.
Thickness and Adhesion Specimens: If separate specimens for thickness and adhesion tests are required, they shall be strips approximately 25 mm wide, 100 mm long, and 1 mm thick.
Corrosion Resistance Specimens: If separate specimens for corrosion resistance tests are required, they shall be panels not less than 150 mm long, 100 mm wide, and approximately 1 mm thick.
Visual Examination: Examined material for compliance with the requirements of lustre and workmanship after electroplating.
ASTM B633 gives the detailed specification and importance of electrodeposition of zinc layer on Iron and steel to protect them from corrosion and otherdefects.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
