    This specification covers the requirements for austenitic grade stainless steel socket set screws (SSS), sizes M1.6 through M24, having property classes A1-50 and A1-70. The analysis of the screw material shall conform to the chemical composition specified. Socket set screw shall be subjected to torque test, Vickers hardness test, and corrosion resistance test to meet the requirements prescribed.
