When designing slip-critical connections it is very important that the fastener be tightened such that the bolt is in a slightly yielded condition. Such additional requirements, the acceptance of which are subject to negotiation with the supplier, must be included in the order information see Section 3.

If the bolt tension is too large, the bolt may break. When referencing this specification for procurement purposes, it is mandatory that size, type, style, and any special dimensions of the product be additionally specified. The term “spud” wrench is a contribution of Irish-American iron workers.

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. Point to 4 in.

The nuts selected for a particular application must match the bolt for both material type and geometry. When the bolt is tightened to the proper load, the right end of the bolt shank snaps off. Some common head markings are shown in the figure below. 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.

Direct Tension Indicator Method Direct tension indicators are special washers with grooves on one face. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

The number of turns past snug is dependent on the length of the bolt relative to its diameter and the geometry of the two surfaces. B Use Guide F if the coating specification does not specify a testing frequency. Such bolts might, for example, be used in a roof truss made up of angle sections in an industrial building or to connect brace members to main structural members. The bolt is tightened further by either hammering on the spud wrench or using a pneumatic impact wrench until the rotating part has rotated the required amount.

This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every five years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. A mm diameter bolt with a 3-mm pitch is designated as an M24x3 bolt, the M indicating that this is a metric bolt.

Originally published as F — Metallica Metals India is a leading manufacturer and exporter of astm f bolts in India. When stress relieving is specified by the purchaser, Class 5. Please help us to share our service with your friends.

Heat analysis Product analysis Sulfur: These of larger dimensions are referred to as “heavy hex” geometry. Tensile Strength, min Class 4. Steel is considered to be alloy by the American Iron and Steel Institute when the maximum of the range given for the content of alloying elements exceeds one or more of the following limits: It defines mechanical properties for fasteners that range from M1. D For Classes 8.


The proof loads and tensile strengths of Class 4. Type 1 — a general-purpose medium carbon steel materials, Type 2 — a low-carbon martensite steel for atmospheric temperature applications, and Type 3 — a weathering steel suitable for use with sections or plate made using ASTM A weathering steel.

Yield strength is stress at which a permanent set of 0. This specification covers chemical and mechanical requirements for nine property classes of carbon and alloy steel externally threaded metric fasteners in nominal thread diameters M1.

Some classes f58 bolts in the F family that are essentially equivalent to some common types of structural bolts are the following: Capability of the bolt manufacturer, as well as the anticipated in-use environment, should be considered. For the convenience of f658 user, Committee F16 has highlighted those changes that may impact the use of xstm standard.

Current edition approved Oct. The manufacturer, secondary processors, and distributors shall identify and maintain the integrity of each lot of fasteners from raw material selection through all processing operations and treatments to final packing and shipment. F M — 02 X2. Proof load, Method 1, is the length measurement method as described in 3. The designation symbol has the following significance: ASTM F is standard Specification for metric size bolts, screws and studs that are used in general engineering applications.

This section may also include descriptions of the changes or reasons for the changes, or both.
