Structural Bolts in Opened Kegs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

All of the structural bolts on a project were stored in one location on
the site. During a lift some construction materials fell on the storage
area and broke open the pallet of bolt kegs.  

Not sure what quantities are standard bolts (A325, A490) compared to
twist-off type (F1852).  I've read and re-read the commentary in section
2.2 of the structural joint Specification.  We aren't the designer for
the project, but are trying to respond to the contractors request for a
supply of all new bolts.

Can standard A325 and A490 bolts be cleaned and lubricated by the
fabricator or erector?  Will manufacturers of twist-off bolts
"re-lubricate" open containers?
