Subject: Re: Need properties for A316 steel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Stainless steel bolts are covered under ASTM F 593.  Don't confuse TYPE
304 and TYPE 316 (which are alloy designations) with ASTM designation.  

ASTM F 593 lists multiple tensile strengths and yield strengths for each
type, depending upon manufacturing process and designation.  Both types
have yields ranging from 30 ksi to 90 ksi with tensile 70 to 115.
Suggest obtaining copy from ASTM (610) 832-9585 or e-mail:
