This specification covers the general requirements for protective zinc coatings (hereinafter referred to as the coatings) to be applied by the thermo-diffusion coating (TDC) method, to various products made of carbon steel, including low and high tensile parts as well as of wrought iron, sintered iron steel-powder and various steel and stainless alloys. TDC is carried out by immersing the parts in a zinc alloy powder at elevated temperature for a period of time, causing a metallurgical diffusion process of zinc and iron. Further processing may be added, such as, passivation, topcoat application, paint application, etc.
This specification is applicable to orders in either inch-pound units (as A1059) or in SI units (as A1059M). Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents. Within the text of this specification and where appropriate, SI units are shown in brackets. Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining values in any way. In the case of orders in SI units, all testing and inspection shall be done using the metric equivalent of the test or inspection method as appropriate. In the case of orders in inch-pound units, such shall be stated to the applicator when the order is placed.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
