Neither will be great for long-term marine exposure, I would suggest a high-build organic coating system probably with a zinc-based primer or thermal astn base layer.

ASTM B – Portland Bolt

We, as qualified professionals, can plate low carbon steel, cold rolled steel, high carbon heat-treated steel, various tool steels, high strength alloys, free-mechanical steels including leaded steels.

Sstm Now White Paper: Mechanical plated arts can be given post plate treatment of dichromate dye for color-coding and phosphate for improved paint adhesion and waxing. Mechanical Galvanizing does not fill valleys of threaded fasteners and their parts mate quickly and easily. The most important reason for mechanical plating is the assurance of product reliability through the elimination of hydrogen embrittlement. Download Now Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. If an application requires torqueing, exposure to vibration or any handling that could rupture a finish, mechanical plating provides durable metal coating with excellent adhesion.


This makes mechanical plating an ideal process for plating flat stampings and washers. The ability to plate zinc, cadmium, tin or lead any mixture of these materials. The mechanical plating process takes place in a tumbling barrel filled with tumbling media e.

This abstract is a brief astj of the referenced standard.

Parts weighing up to three pound and measuring with a longest dimension up to eighteen inches can be handled, including some that are usually rack excessive build-up o plating on protruding points of the part and leave other areas with thinner spot more vulnerable to corrosion. Work G695 s – proposed revisions of this standard.

It’s easy to join and it’s free. Speak to your local coatings manufacturer for some suggestions. Specializing in Mechanical Zinc Plating and Galvanizing Uniformity of thickness depends on part size and shape with typically thinner deposits on edges and asttm deposits in recesses. You get the benefit of metallurgical bond and the iron-zinc intermetallics formed by dipping into ast zinc at high temperature.

Mechanical Galvanizing produces parts that are ready to use without any further processing steps. Mechanical plating has the ability to plate sintered metal parts powder metallurgy without costly impregnation.

Mechanical Plating & Galvanizing

Uniformity of thickness depends on part size and shape with typically thinner deposits on edges and thicker deposits in recesses.

Eliminate retapping of units: 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. Click here for a quote or call us at The media prevents flat parts from masking one another, making sure that all surfaces are plated.

Sacrificial metal coating is applied with coverage to all surfaces of the part to the corners recesses, threaded areas as well as to the flat, more exposed regions. Parts breakages because of hydrogen embrittlement need not be a problem of parts are plated mechanically and are not used for a minimum of 48 hours after plating.


Hydrogen embrittlement is a phenomenon which causes materials to lose their strength and become brittle.

Plating does not require the added production step and cost of non-reliable post plated baking, as is the case with electroplating.

Provide heavy-duty corrosion resistance: Is there an ASTM that asrm a standard for the high-build organic coating? Because of the composite nature of mechanical coating, this naturally lubricated coating will not gall, producing more accurate torque-tension relationship. For equivalent thickness, mechanical galvanized is equal or superior to conventional galvanizing methods. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Electroplating The main advantage of mechanical plating over electroplating is the elimination of hydrogen embrittlement. The tumbling action during plating provides some deburring of parts and saves you money.

Apparently, this ASTM standard uses a mechanical means to place zinc onto the metal 6b95 and this approach is reported to be better then the hot dip method which can have the zinc flake off. Along with those post-plating services, we offer chromate finishes in clear trivalent, yellow, black, and olive drab chromates. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. The thickest coating classes are usually referred to as “mechanically galvanized”.

No time variables common with hot-dip.
