    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for commercial wrought nonferrous bolts, hex cap screws, and studs manufactured from a number of alloys in common use and intended for general service applications. The bolts, cap screws, and studs shall be manufactured from material having a chemical composition conforming to the requirements specified. The fasteners shall be cold formed, hot formed, or machined from suitable material. Different tests shall be conducted in order to determine the following mechanical properties of fasteners: hardness, tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    Significance and Use

    12.1 For purposes of determining compliance with the specified limits for requirements of the properties listed in this specification, an observed value or calculated value shall be rounded in accordance with Practice E29.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for commercial wrought nonferrous bolts, hex cap screws, and studs 0.250 to 1.500 in. and socket head cap screws (including socket head cap, button head and flat countersunk head configurations) with nominal thread 0.06 (size 0) through 1.500 in. inclusive in diameter manufactured from a number of alloys in common use and intended for general service applications.

    1.2 Applicable nuts for use with bolts, cap screws, and studs covered by this specification are covered by Specification F467.

    Note 1A complete metric companion to Specification F468 has been developed—F468M; therefore no metric equivalents are presented in this specification.
