Standard Guide for Selection of Committee F-16 Fastener Specifications
|Publication Date:||1 January 1995|
1.1 This guide is intended to provide a rapid, easy to use method for identifying Committee F-16 fastener specifications and their applicable marking requirements. Selection is made by product type (bolts, nuts, washers, etc.) and material (alloy steel, carbon steel, stainless steel, etc.) from one of the following tables:
Table Number Inch Metric Ferrous Metals Alloy Steel 1 3 Carbon Steel 1 3 Weathering Steel 1 3 Non Ferrous Aluminum, Copper 2 3 Nickel, Titanium Stainless Steels 2 3 Others Coatings, Definitions, 4 4 Test Methods, Surface Discontinuities Marking 5 5
1.2 Table size limitations and the need for simplicity prohibit identifying the exact grade, type, condition, etc., for all product/material combinations. The product specification must be reviewed prior to specifying fasteners on drawings or ordering to properly and completely identify the fastener, and its available variations.
