Visual examination, time of wetting, measurement of area of spread, and calculation of spread values are used to assess solderability 1, 2. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

For some applications, this requirement may be relaxed to allow for a small number of such defects per unit areaespecially if they are outside of or on the periphery of signi? In cases of rejection, the seller may atm a claim for a rehearing.

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. This specification covers the requirements for electrodeposited tin coatings applied to metallic articles to provide a low contact resistance surface, to protect against corrosion, to facilitate soldering, to provide anti-galling properties, and to be a stop-off coating in the b5455 of high-strength steels.

Also found on baking pans after re?

The thickness is less in interior corners and holes. In normal indoor exposure, tin is protective on iron, steel, nickel, copper, and their alloys.

This specification does not cover hot-dipped tin or other non-electrodeposited coatings, and mill products.

If the full thickness is required on these surfaces, the electroplater will have to use special techniques that probably will increase the cost of the process. Flow-brightened coatings shall be free of dewetted areas and beads. Porosity increases as the coating thickness decreases, so that minimum thicknesses must be speci?


Tin coatings are used to provide a low contactresistance surface, to protect against corrosion see 1. Corrosion can be expected at discontinuities in the coating such as pores due to galvanic couples formed between the tin and the underlying metal through the discontinuities, especially in humid atmospheres. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every?

Porosity increases as the coating thickness decreases, so that minimum thicknesses must be specified for each application. In many applications for tin coatings, whisker growth has not been a problem, but there are critical applications X6.

However, all matte baths except for stannate baths do require the addition of grainre?

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of b455 abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. A bright coating completely covering the signi? Coatings shall be sampled, tested and conform accordingly to specified requirements as to appearance, purity, local and mean thickness, integrity including gross defects, mechanical damage, and porosityadhesion, solderability, and hydrogen embrittlement relief. The b54 shall be uniform throughout, insofar as the basis metal will permit.

These alloying additions, particularly the?

The use of special test specimens, their number, the material from which they are made, their size and shape, and the conditions of their coating shall be as agreed upon by the purchaser and the seller. This abstract is a brief summary asmt the referenced standard.

The method provided, which depends on the production of sulfur dioxide from asym reaction between sodium thiosulfate and sulfuric acid within the test chamber, ensures suitable conditions for the development of immobile corrosion products at discontinuities.

Last previous edition approved in as B — 97e1. Suspend the test specimens above this solution on nonmetallic supports, with the surfaces of the specimens not less than 25 mm 1 in.

The size of the sample and the criteria of compliance are determined by the application of statistics. The size should be sufficient to accommodate the test specimens with their lowest part at least 75 mm 3 in. Where electroplated tin coatings are subject to long-term storage or use at very low temperatures, it may be advisable, when speci?

Originally approved in An underplating of nickel or copper must be used as a diffusion barrier on brass. The coating should adhere to the basis metal when subjected to the agreed test;? To provide corrosion and tarnish resistance where greater thicknesses may be detrimental to the mechanical operation of the product for example, small electrical spring contacts and relays.

Black spots or lines are evidence of mechanical damage or gross defects.

All surfaces shall be substantially free of grease or oil used in the? This is in contrast to strikes or?


This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. Similar to Class A, but for shorter-term contact applications and short shelf-life requirements, subject to purchaser approval. Such surfaces are normally exempt from the thickness requirement. Very severe service conditions, including elevated temperatures, where underlying metal diffusion and intermetallic formation processes are accelerated.

Thicker coatings are used for water containers, threaded steel couplings of oil drilling strings, and seacoast atmospheres. Typical Applications Mild service conditions, particularly where the signi?
