|Publication Date:||1 November 2009|
|ICS Code (Fasteners in general):||21.060.01|
These test methods cover establishment of procedures for conducting tests to determine the mechanical properties of externally and internally threaded fasteners, washers, direct tension indicators, and rivets.
Property requirements and the applicable tests for their determination are specified in individual product standards. In those instances where the testing requirements are unique or at variance with these standard procedures, the product standard shall specify the controlling testing requirements.
These test methods describe mechanical tests for determining the following properties:
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
NOTE 1-A complete metric companion to Test Methods F 606 has been developed-F 606M; therefore, no metric equivalents are shown in these test methods.
