This specification covers the minimum requirements, physical properties, and test methods for steel drill screws for use in fastening gypsum panel products or metal plaster bases to steel members. The screws shall be manufactured from Grade 1018 to 1022 steel wire and the screw surface shall be carbonitrided to a specific depth. The apparatus for testing shall comprise of a power-driven drill screw gun and a vice or a similar device to support the stud during tests. Surface hardness and ductility of the specimens shall conform to the metallurgical property requirements as shall be determined by microhardness and bend test methods, respectively.View Less
