Zinc Plating Standards



Where can I get the standards for Zinc Plating in accordance to ASTM B117 standard.

Thanking you in advance.



ASTM ASTM B117 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is a standard for conducting salt spray testing. ASTM B633 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is the standard for electroplated zinc coatings. You can obtain both of these standards directly from ASTM by going to their website. FYI, ISO 2081 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is equivalent to ASTM B-633 and ISO 9227 [link by ed. to spec at TechStreet] is equivalent to ASTM B-117.

Ed. note: We've linked your inquiry directly to a commercial source for specs, or you can also buy it from the ASTM site. These specs are copyrighted works that must be purchased, Donald; there is no place to get them for free. Good luck.

What are the aesthetic standards for pre-plated Zinc on CRS? Our supplier has given us many pieces that are darker on one portion and much lighter on others. Other pieces look blotchy.
