When properly exposed to the atmosphere, these steels can be used bare uncoated for many applications. A mm diameter bolt with a 3-mm pitch is designated as an M24x3 bolt, the M indicating that this is a metric bolt. When approved by the purchaser, carbon steel may be used for products of diameters larger than M12 through M20, inclusive.

A chalk mark or paint is then made on the bolt and nut. Heat analysis Product analysis Chromium: B Products made of low-carbon martensite steel shall be additionally marked by underlining the property class symbol. Some environments may cause stress corrosion cracking of nonplated as well as electroplated products.

Every bolt head must be marked with the bolt type e. Heat analysis Product analysis Titanium: The sections that follow show the metric head markings and the figure below shows the markings for the most common types of USCU structural bolts.

Proof load, Method 2, is the yield strength method as described in 3. Owing to sturdy construction and high tensile strength, these ASTM F Point Bolts are widely used in pump shafts, machined components, valves, handles and fasteners.


Both USCU and metric fasteners are marked so that iron workers and inspectors can quickly and easily verify that they are using the correct type of fastener e. A bolts are intended to be tightened to nearly their proof load so that they develop significant bolt tension. When stress relieving is specified by the purchaser, Class 5.

ASTM F Bolts, ASTM SF Hex Bolts, Carbon Steel F Hex Head Bolts

The proof loads and tensile strengths of Class 4. The property class symbols shall be as given in Table 7. C Yield point shall apply instead of yield strength at 0. Heat analysis Product analysis Manganese: F Carbon steel asrm be used at the option of the manufacturer for products of nominal thread diameters M12 and smaller.

For such a plan to be fully effective, it is essential that secondary processors, distributors, and purchasers maintain the identification and integrity of each lot until the product is installed. Additionally, slotted and recessed screws of nominal thread diameters M5 and larger need not be marked.

The atmospheric corrosion resistance of these steels is substantially better than that of carbon steel with or without astmm addition.

Grade Class 8.8 FASTENERS

Number of Tests 8. The hardness mean hardness of three hardness readings of aetm bolt, screw, or stud as manufactured shall be measured. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.


When the bolt is tightened to the proper load, the atm end of the bolt shank snaps off. Direct tension indicators are special washers with grooves on one face.

The procedure generally works as follows. When designing slip-critical connections it is very important that the fastener be tightened such that the bolt is in a slightly yielded condition. Some classes of bolts in the F family that are essentially equivalent to some common types of structural bolts are the following: Markings may be either raised or As the bolt is tightened the groves on the washer flatten out.

The difference between the hardness of the product before and after retempering shall not exceed 20 HV points. Type 1 — a general-purpose medium carbon steel materials, Type 2 — a low-carbon martensite steel axtm atmospheric temperature applications, and Type 3 — a weathering steel suitable for use with sections or plate made using ASTM Astj weathering steel.
