    ASTM A962 / A962M

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers a group of common requirements that shall apply to carbon, alloy, stainless steel, and nickel alloy bolting under any of the following ASTM Specifications (or under any other ASTM Specifications that invoke this specification or portions thereof):

    Title of Specifications

    ASTM Designation

    Alloy-Steel and Stainless Steel Bolting Materials
     for High-Temperature Service

    A193/A193M

    Carbon and Alloy Steel Nuts for Bolts for High
     Pressure and High-Temperature Service

    A194/A194M

    Alloy Steel Bolting Materials for Low-Temperature
     Service

    A320/A320M

    Alloy-Steel Turbine-Type Bolting Material
     Specially Heat Treated for High-Temperature
     Service

    A437/A437M

    High-Temperature Bolting Materials With Expansion
     Coefficients Comparable to Austenitic Stainless
     Steels

    A453/A453M

    Alloy-Steel Bolting Materials for Special Applications

    A540/A540M

    Precipitation-Hardening Bolting Material (UNS
    N07718) for High Temperature Service

    A1014/A1014M


    1.2 In case of conflict the requirements of the individual product specification shall prevail over those of this specification.

    1.3 Additional requirements may be specified by mutual agreement between the purchaser and supplier.

    1.4 Supplementary requirements are provided for use at the option of the purchaser. The supplementary requirements only apply when specified individually by the purchaser in the purchase order or contract.

    1.5 This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units; however, unless the purchase order or contract specifies the applicable “M” specification designation (SI units) the inch-pound units shall apply. The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
