Description / Abstract:

This specification covers grades of zinc alloys, commonly known as Continuous Galvanizing Grade (CGG) alloys that contain aluminum, or aluminum and lead, that are used in continuous hot-dip galvanizing of steel sheet. The compositions for CGG grades made from primary zinc are shown in Table 1. Exceptions for grades made from secondary zinc are found in footnote C.

CGG alloys specified in Specification B852 are used in continuous hot-dip galvanizing of steel sheet to produce product, as specified in Specification A653/A653M.

Other alloy compositions not included in B852, and as may be agreed upon between the producer and the user, may be used for continuous galvanizing.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

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 become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
