The NAVY is requesting an immediate ballot on ASTM F467 and F468 fastener specifications. The warrant holder for all fasteners for the US NAVY (Cathy Wong, PHD) and Jim Lewis, principal Fastener Engineer for Newport News-HII, have requested that ASTM F467 and F468 be amended to change the common name for alloy UNS N06686 from 686 to a dual common name to include alloy C-86. (Specifically: C-86/686 dual designation) John McCarrick is on board with this on both implementing this in ASTM F467 and F468.
