Thank you for interesting in our services. We are a non-profit group that run this website to share documents. We need your help asttm maintenance this website. Please help us to share our service with your friends. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. Current edition approved Oct.
Originally published as F — Last previous edition F — When referencing this specification for procurement purposes, it is mandatory that size, type, style, and any special dimensions of the product be additionally specified.
Such additional requirements, the acceptance of which are subject to negotiation with the supplier, must be included in the order information see Section 3. The other two, 8. The atmospheric corrosion resistance of these steels is substantially better than that of carbon steel with or without copper addition. When properly exposed to the atmosphere, these steels can be used bare uncoated for many applications. C For studs only, sulfur content may be 0.
D Products made using this material shall be specially identified as specified in Section E Steel for Classes F Carbon steel may be used at the option of the manufacturer for products of nominal thread diameters M12 and smaller. When approved by the purchaser, carbon steel may be used for products of diameters larger than M12 through M20, inclusive.
G Alloy steel shall be used.
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: Point to 4 in. Materials and Manufacture 4.

Heat analysis Product analysis Manganese: Heat analysis Product analysis Phosphorus: Heat analysis Product analysis Sulfur: Heat analysis Product analysis Silicon: Heat axtm Product analysis Copper: Heat analysis Product analysis Nickel: Heat analysis Product analysis Chromium: Heat analysis Product analysis Vanadium: Heat analysis Product analysis Molybdenum: Heat analysis Product analysis Titanium: Selection of a composition shall be at the option of the product manufacturer except that sizes M20 and larger shall conform to Composition A or B only.
Where higher stress-relief temperatures are necessary to relieve stresses in severely upset heads, mechanical requirements shall be agreed upon between xstm purchaser and producer. The hardness mean hardness of three hardness readings of a bolt, screw, or stud as manufactured shall be measured.
The hardness of the retempered product shall then be measured. The difference between the hardness of the product before and after retempering shall not exceed 20 HV points.
ASTM F568 Bolts
Larger diameters and longer lengths may be cold or hot headed at the option of the manufacturer. Threads of these classes on bolts and screws larger than M20 or longer than mm or both, may be rolled, cut, or ground at the option of the manufacturer. When stress relieving is specified by the purchaser, Class 5.
Yield strength is stress at which a permanent set of 0. C Yield point shall apply instead of yield strength xstm 0. E Caution is advised when considering the use of Class Capability of the bolt manufacturer, as well as the anticipated in-use environment, should be considered. High-strength products of Class Some environments may cause stress corrosion cracking of nonplated as well as adtm products. The chemical composition thus determined shall conform to the requirements specified for the product analysis in Table 1 and Table 2.
All components of mating fasteners for example, bolts, nuts, and washers shall be coated by the same zinc coating process, and the suppliers option is limited to one process per item with no mixed processes in a lot. Number of Tests 8. 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. 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.
Each lot shall be assigned its own lot identification number, each lot shall be tested, and the inspection test reports for each lot shall be retained. The identity of the lot and lot integrity shall be maintained throughout all subsequent operations and packaging.
Method Method 1 2 0. Tensile Strength, min Class 4. Method Method 1 Tensile Strength, min Class 5. D Proof load, Method 1, is the length measurement method as described in 3.
Proof load, Method 2, is the yield strength method xstm described in 3. D For Classes 8. B Use Guide F if the coating specification does f5568 specify a testing frequency. The manufacturer shall afford the inspector all reasonable facilities to satisfy the inspector that the material is being furnished in accordance with this specification.

All tests d568 inspection shall be made qstm to shipment, and shall be so conducted as not to interfere unnecessarily with the operation of the work. Additionally, slotted and recessed screws of nominal thread diameters M5 and larger need not be marked. The property class symbols shall be as given in Table 7. Markings may be either raised or Rejection and Rehearing For studs with an interference-fit thread, markings shall be located on the nut end.
Identification Symbol Property Class 4. Packaging and Package Marking B Products made of low-carbon martensite steel shall be additionally marked by underlining the property class symbol. Alternatively, for hex head products, the markings may be indented on the side of the head with the base of the property class symbols positioned toward the bearing surface. The property class symbols and F M — 02 X2. The designation symbol has the following significance: For the convenience of the user, Committee F16 has highlighted those changes that may impact the use of this standard.
This section zstm also include descriptions of the changes or reasons for the changes, or both. Required lot control, Referenced Guide F for mechanical property and surface discontinuity testing, Referenced the coating specification for coating test frequency, and ASTM International takes no aastm respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this astn.
Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are xstm their own responsibility. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every five years atm if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn.
Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.
Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you should make your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.
