ASTM A123: Standard Specification for Zinc (Hot Dip Galvanized) Coatings on Iron and Steel Products. This specification covers the requirements for zinc coating (galvanizing) by the hot dip process on iron and steel products made from rolled, pressed and forged shapes,castings, plates, bars and strips.This specification covers both unfabricated products and fabricated products, for example, assembled steel products, structural steel fabrications, large tubes already bent or welded before galvanizing, and wire work fabricated from uncoated steelwire. This specification also covers steel forgings and iron castings incorporated into pieces fabricated before galvanizing or which are too large to be centrifuged (or otherwise handled to remove excess galvanizing bath metal).
ASTM A153: Standard Specification for Zinc Coating (Hot Dip) on Iron and Steel Hardware.This specification covers zinc coatings applied by the hot dip process on iron and steel hardware. This document is intended to be applicable to hardware items that are centrifuged or otherwise handled to remove excess galvanizing bath metal (free zinc).
