The information provided herein is not intended as a representation or warranty on the part of the AGA. This specification also introduces a new requirement to the galvanized coating known as chromating.
However, this single product specification introduces a few new requirements that apply solely to hot-dip galvanized rebar. Table 5 below gives recommendations for bend diameters based upon the bare steel bar diameter before axtm. The material provided herein has been developed to provide accurate and authoritative information about after-fabrication hot-dip galvanized steel.
This material provides general information only and is not intended as a substitute for competent professional examination and verification as to suitability and applicability. Leave this field blank. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Was this answer helpful? Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. However, wire a7667 not included.
These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables shall not be considered as requirements of the specification. In order to help prevent and suppress this reaction, hot-dip galvanized rebar is dipped into a dilute chromate quench solution after being removed asgm the galvanizing kettle.

ASTM A767 – Galvanizing Steel Bars for Concrete Reinforcement – Rebar
Steel reinforcing bars astj cold prior to hot-dip galvanizing should be fabricated to a bend diameter equal to or greater than the specified values. The galvanized coating shall be chromate treated. This specification covers steel reinforcing bars with protective zinc coatings applied by dipping the properly prepared reinforcing bars into a molten bath of zinc. The mass of the coating shall be determined by magnetic thickness gage measurements.
This cold working of the bars causes induced stresses that may be released after the bars are immersed in the molten F zinc bath. Link to Active This link will always route to the current X767 version of the standard. Stripping method, weighing before and after galvanizing, and microscopy method shall be used to referee the results obtained by magnetic thickness measurements. Unique to this specification is also the requirement the galvanized bars be immersed in a heated, sodium dichromate solution immediately after the process.
Number 12 and smaller bar must have a minimum of 3.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard Translated Adtm s: This post-treatment helps to prevent the formation of wet storage stain on the bars when they are in bundles at a job site and also promotes good adhesion of the galvanized rebar to the concrete it is placed in.
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with this specification.
The galvanizer shall be permitted to subject the newly coated steel reinforcing bars to air or steam wiping to remove excess aetm from the bars. The galvanizer is identified throughout this specification as the manufacturer.
Therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents. A retest shall be provided if the average zinc coating mass fails to meet the requirements. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Are you still looking for the right answer? As this evolved hydrogen gas travels through the concrete matrix toward the surface, voids can be created which weaken the bonding with the concrete or disturb the smoothness of the concrete surface.
The mass of zinc coating shall conform to specified requirements. Galvanization shall be used to prepare reinforcing bars. Newly galvanized steel can react with wet concrete and potentially form hydrogen gas asgm a product.
The specification also calls out specific recommended before galvanizing bending radii. January 25, Authored by Dr.
It is important to note reinforcing steel used in conjunction with structural steel, welded to a fabricated assembly is not governed by ASTM A but rather ASTM A, the standard specification for zinc coatings on iron and steel products. Anyone making use of this information assumes all liability arising from such use. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Rebar is commonly bent prior awtm the hot-dip galvanizing process. In addition, since rebar is handled frequently during its installation, any tears asym sharp spikes that make the material dangerous to handle are grounds for rejection.
