ASTM B605-22

Standard Specification for Electrodeposited Coatings of Tin-Nickel Alloy

1.1This specification covers the requirements for electrodeposited tin-nickel alloy coatings from aqueous solutions intended for the corrosion protection of fabricated articles of iron, steel, zinc-base alloys, copper, and copper alloys. The composition of the alloy remains constant at 65/35 tin-nickel in spite of wide fluctuations in both composition and operating conditions. The composition corresponds quite closely to an equiatomic ratio, and the process favors the co-deposition of tin and nickel atoms at identical rates.

1.2This specification does not apply to sheet, strip, or wire in the fabricated form. It also may not be applicable to threaded articles having basic major diameters up to and including 19 mm because of the nonuniformity of thickness that can be expected on fine threads. However, a decision to use the coating on such components may be made by the purchaser.

1.3Units - The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4This 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
