ASTM WK45029

    Withdrawal of F738M - 02(2008) Standard Specification for Stainless Steel Metric Bolts, Screws, and Studs

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F16.04 | Committee F16 | Contact Staff Manager


    This standard should be withdrawn and users should be referred to ISO 3506-1 for the following reasons: 1) F738M is not in agreement with ISO 3506-1, yet it uses the same property class designations. This causes confusion. 2) The ASME dimensional standards that F738M refers to have been withdrawn by ASME B18. 3) The metric steel and alloy standard F568M has already been withdrawn.
