Re: Steel Grade

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Actually ASTM 1554 is an anchor bolt manufacturing specification not a
material grade.  Per ASTM 1554 you have the choice of grades 36, 55, and
105.  The 36 grade is plain old ASTM A36.  However, you do need to be
careful about testing.  If you are having a few bolts manufactured for a
specific job you may not need extensive testing however if you are a bolt
manufacture who sells to the open market then may be you do.

Unless you "need' them, I'd spec A36 rod over F1554.  There is a cost
difference, and depending on the project, an upcharge for "unusual"
