Is A490 stronger than A325?
A490 bolts are more susceptible to brittle fracture than A325 bolts which are 120/105 minimum tensile strength steel. To minimize the risk of brittle fracture A490 bolts have both a minimum and a maximum tensile strength specified. FHWA recommends that A325 bolts be used wherever possible.
Are A490 bolts high strength?
These bolts are equivalent to ASTM A325 bolts in application and geometry, but are made to a higher strength. The imperial grades are made to the same strength specifications as ASTM A354 grade BD.
What are A490 bolts used for?
Similar to the A325 ASTM standard, A490 bolts are used in steel to steel structural connections and applications and thus have shorter thread lengths than regular hex bolts. This keeps threads out of the joints in the connections.
What is a Type 3 bolt?
ASTM A490 Type 3 is a high tensile bolting grade manufactured from weathering steel intended for use in structural connections. These type 3 bolts have higher strength than type 1 bolts. Type 3 Bolts are produced from 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ in imperial size as per ASTM A490 & from M12 to M36 in metric size as per ASTM A490M.
What is the difference between A325 and Grade 8 bolts?
A325 bolts are typically manufactured from a medium carbon steel (although they can be made from an alloy) while SAE grade 8 bolts are made from a medium carbon alloy steel. Grade 8 bolts are significantly stronger than an A325.
What is the yield strength of a Grade 8 bolt?
Grade 8 – Grade 8 bolts are made from medium carbon alloy steel. The bolts of this grade feature 6 radial lines. The nominal size of the grade 8 bolts can be from 1/4″ to 1 1/2″. The minimum yield strength of this grade bolt is 130,000 psi.
What kind of steel is A490 structural bolt made of?
A490 bolts are similar in application and dimensions to A325 heavy hex structural bolts but are made from alloy steel rather than medium carbon steel, resulting in a higher strength fastener. The A490 specification is applicable to heavy hex structural bolts only.
What are the dimensions of an ASTM A490 Portland bolt?
Prior to its withdrawal in 2016, the ASTM A490 specification covered quenched and tempered, alloy steel, heavy hex structural bolts from 1/2″ diameter through 1-1/2″ diameter with a minimum 150 ksi tensile. These bolts are intended for use in structural connections and therefore have shorter thread lengths than standard hex bolts.
Which is better A325 or A490 structural hex bolts?
A490 bolts are similar in application and dimensions to A325 heavy hex structural bolts but are made from an alloy steel rather than a medium carbon steel, resulting in a higher strength fastener. The A490 specification is applicable to heavy hex structural bolts only.
Which is the best ASTM A490 weathering steel bolts?
Ferrobend is a outstandig performer in providing ASTM A490 Type 1 & Type 3 weathering steel bolts with zinc, cadmium or dacromet coatings with EN 10204 Type 3.1 Certification. Note* : Heavy Hex Structural Bolts M24 and smaller and shorter than 2D are subject only to minimum and maximum hardness.
