Corrosion Standards for Fasteners

Standards for corrosion dealing with fasteners address the ever-present consideration of corrosion that comes with using (multiple) metal materials. Providing methods of corrosion prevention and methods for accelerated corrosion tests, these developed standards serve to promote reliable durability in the manufacture and use of fasteners.


Accelerated Corrosion Test for Mechanical Fasteners

This standard establishes a method to carry out an accelerated test to evaluate the relative corrosion resistance of various coatings applied to mechanical fasteners. It is effective for the evaluation of a variety of corrosion mechanisms such as general and crevice corrosion.

ISO 16048:2003

Passivation of corrosion-resistant stainless-steel fasteners

ISO 16048 specifies the methods most often used for passivation of corrosion-resistant stainless steel fasteners. Typical anodic dissolution behaviour of an active-passive-transpassive metal is given in an annex.

SAE AMS 2759/9E-2018

Hydrogen Embrittlement Relief (Baking) of Steel Parts

This specification covers the requirements for embrittlement relief (baking) of heat treated steel parts to remove hydrogen infused during plating and certain other chemical processing such as stripping, chemical milling, pickling, and etching.

SAE ARP 4118B-2019

Isolation and Corrosion Protection of Dissimilar Materials, Carbon Composite Structure Repair

This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides methods and guidelines for isolating dissimilar repair patch materials from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (herein also referred to as carbon composite) structure during a repair operation.
