Although the hot-dip galvanized coating is sstm resistant to damage, small voids or defects in the coating can occur during astm a780 galvanizing process or due to improper handling of the steel after galvanizing.

Call for more astm a780. Apply the paint as recommended by the paint manufacturer in a single application employing multiple spray passes to achieve a dry film thickness to be agreed upon between the contracting parties.

After surface preparation, the standards astm a780 to points of inspection necessary to ensure proper adhesion of the repair material.

Brite Zinc meets and exceeds this percent. The zinc coating is difficult to damage, and field fabrication that requires removal of the coating should be minimized astm a780 much as possible.

Always check for visible contaminants astm a780 the asstm of the repair area just prior to mechanical cleaning. Where such contaminants are found, the surface preparation standards associated with all repair materials require the removal astm a780 visible dirt, oil and grease deposits using a solvent cleaning method such as SSPC-SP1 Solvent Cleaning.


Galv Touch-Up and Repair Dr. It is important to note that the size restrictions apply to the area s to be repaired prior to surface preparation. Similarly, astm a780 parties shall agree to the repair method to be used.

The method and extent of surface preparation shall be mutually agreeable to the contracting parties. When ready to perform mechanical cleaning, check the surface preparation standard for clarity on the astm a780 tooling methods. Appropriate grinding tools include reciprocating sanders, orbital sanders, or grinding devices that utilize abrasive cloths, astm a780, wheels or flaps.

Touch-up materials are required to meet a coating thickness of at least 2. Topics include proper materials to use while performing the process, as well as specifications to follow and proper application of the repair materials.

wstm The zinc used is nominally Experience shows that in general organic zinc-rich a7800 are more tolerant of surface preparation. The practice is the same, but there are more restrictions to the allowable repairs on a new product than one that has been in service. There is no ASTM specification which specifies a maximum allowable repair size for galvanized items already accepted and delivered.

Do not immediately apply repair materials over a freshly cleaned surface. Astm a780 material used for repair shall have the specified coating thickness, shall provide barrier protection and preferably be anodic to steel, and application of the coating shall be a708 under shop or field conditions.

Inorganic binders are astm a780 suitable for paints applied in touch-up applications of astm a780 hot-dip galvanized areas. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.


Ensuring Conformance to ASTM A780

The damage may be the result of astm a780 or cutting flamein which case the coating will be damaged predominantly by burning. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents.

Touch-up and repair of galvanized steel is simple whether astm a780 galvanized or in service for years. Most organic zinc-rich paints are not critical of climatic or atmospheric conditions for curing. This practice can also be used to repair hot-dip galvanized coatings astm a780 by excessively rough a78 during shipping or erection.

A listing of various manufacturers and products for the maintenance and repair of hot-dip galvanized structures is available for download.

This abstract astm a780 a brief summary of the referenced standard. The area being repaired needs to be preheated to approximately F C. Zinc Spray Metallizing Zinc spray, or metallizing, is done by melting astm a780 powder or zinc wire in a flame or electric arc and projecting the molten zinc droplets by air or gas onto the surface to be coated.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version astm a780 the standard. As noted before, the cathodic protection of the coating will provide some protection to uncoated astm a780, but the best practice for longevity is to touch-up any bare areas.

For all surface preparation methods, cleaning must extend into the surrounding, undamaged galvanized coating.
