ASTM A1014/A1014M Bolting Specification

Precipitation Hardening Bolting (UNS N07718) for High Temperature Service

ASTM A1014/A1014M Hex Bolts, Heavy Hex Bolts, Studs, Socket Head Cap Screws, Threaded Rods

ASTM A1014 / A1014M covers Precipitation Hardening Bolting (UNS N07718) for High Temperature Service. AS 7467 Bolts And Screws is also reffered for Nickel Alloy, UNS N07718 Tensile Strength 185 KSI [1275 MPa] Stress Rupture Rated Procurement Specification. Bolting material alloy shall be multiple-melted using consumable electrode practice in the remelt cycle or shall be induction melted under vacuum. If consumable electrode re-melting is not performed in vacuum, electrodes produced by vacuum induction melting shall be used. Fully heat treated bolting material shall meet the dimensional requirements of Specification B637 for UNS N07718. Headed bolting components such as bolts, studs, or screws with a body length three times the diameter of the component or longer shall be subjected to full size tensile test and shall conform to the tensile strength as per this specification. The microstructure of the bolting material shall be free of freckles, white spots, and Laves phases. Threads of bolting components may show evidence of cold working as a result of rolling. The average grain size shall be determined in accordance with Test Methods E112 and found to be ASTM No. 5 or finer. Up to 20 % of the structure may have a grain size as large as a No. 3 due to the presence of non-crystallized grains. Bolting components produced from forgings shall exhibit continuous flow lines in the threads and in any shank to head or fillet and/or bearing surface areas.

ASTM A1014/A1014M Bolting Components Marking

Product Shall be Marked with our manufacturing trade mark "TorqBolt" or "TB" along with the designated Grade.
Grade and manufacturer’s identification symbols shall be applied to one end of studs and to the heads of bolts and screws of all sizes. (If the available area is inadequate, the grade symbol may be marked on one end and the manufacturer’s identification symbol marked on the other end.) For bolts and screws smaller than 1⁄4 in. [6 mm] in diameter and studs smaller than 3⁄8 in. [10 mm] in diameter and for 1⁄4 in. [6 mm] in diameter studs requiring more than a total of three symbols, the marking shall be a matter of agreement between the purchaser and the manufacturer.
