F Grade 55 Threaded Rod is manufactured from high strength, low alloy, 55 ksi yield strength steel. The F Specification is designed to cover Threaded. ASTM F is the standard specification for straight and bent, headed and Grade 55 – anchor bolts manufactured from modified mild steel with higher. The specification for ASTM F covers straight and bent, headed and headless, F Grade 55, High strength, low alloy, 55 ksi yield steel anchor bolts.

F anchor bolts can take the form of either headed bolts, straight rods, or bent anchor bolts.
Steel City Bolt – ASTM F Specification
Finishes September 5, Threaded June 19, Though relevant for many construction applications and certainly more cost-effective than B7, Grade 55 is still a specialty steel that few manufacturers or distributors supply.
The minimum Charpy V-notch energy requirement is an average of 15ft-lbs for three specimens, with no one specimen falling below 12ft-lbs.
When S1 is not specified, the Grade 55 material may or may not be weldable. We offer a wide selection of materials, finishes, and sizes of Figure U-Bolts. A grade DH or A grade 2H should be substituted. Welding Contrary to popular belief, not all grade 55 material is weldable.
No other units of measurement are included in this standard. References to anchor bolts in this standard do not necessarily exclude all-thread rod. Galvanizing F grade 55 anchor bolts can be provided in either a black or galvanized condition. Through chemical composition restrictions and by a carbon equivalency formula, S1 provides assurance of weldability.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. They shall also be tested for their conformance with mechanical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, reduction of area, and stress area. Permanent manufacturer and grade marking is allowed under the S2 supplementary requirements.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. They are both heat treated parts with near identical mechanical and chemical requirements.
The specification also covers all-thread rod for use in anchoring to concrete. We are a prime U.
ASTM F Grade 55 vs ASTM A B7 – All America Threaded Products
In the latest installment of our Threaded series, we discuss threaded rod finishes and identify which work best for certain applications. If weldability is required, supplementary requirement S1 must be specified. In this series, we will be covering four common topics to help you build the foundation you need to better understand the threaded fastener industry. All of the grade 55 round bar that Portland Bolt stocks will meet the S1 weldability requirements. The addition of these alloying elements is costly, and typically means that B7 would be an over-engineered option if used in a general construction application.
The three grades 36, 55, and designate the minimum yield strength ksi of the anchor bolt. The minimum Charpy V-notch energy requirement is an average of 15ft-lbs for three specimens, with no one specimen falling below 12ft-lbs.
File upload If you have a drawing or photo of your custom product, please upload here. Washers are detailed in 6. ASTM F grade 55 anchor bolts are manufactured from a modified mild steel that has a higher minimum yield strength 55 ksi than traditional A36 mild steel 36 ksi. Portland Bolt buys mill runs of round bar and stocks this material for immediate processing.
The purchaser can specify supplemental requirement S1 which requires weldability through chemical composition restrictions and by a carbon equivalency formula.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
This increased elasticity means that Grade 55 is most frequently used in the construction industry, as buildings aetm other infrastructure naturally experience displacement over time.
Your email address will not be published. The following supplemental requirements apply to F Grade The anchor bolts are furnished in three strength grades, two thread classes, and various sizes, and are intended for anchoring structural supports to concrete foundations such as 55 columns, column supports for highway signs, street lighting and traffic signals, steel bearing plates, c1554 similar applications.
This specification was widely used in the light pole and traffic signal industry long before the ASTM F specification was introduced in and was commonly referred to as A36M 555 requirements shall apply only when specified in the purchase order or contract.
If S1 is not specified by the purchaser, the Grade 55 material may or may not be weldable. The anchor bolts shall also meet specified values for nominal size, body diameter, bend section, length, bend angle, and coated length.
Asstm the latest installment of our Threaded series, we discuss materials used to make threaded rod and which work best for certain aztm.
Supplementary Testing The following supplemental requirements apply to F Grade The ASTM F specification was introduced in and covers anchor bolts designed to anchor structural supports to concrete foundations.
For additional compatible nuts see the Nut Compatibility Chart. If the application allows for a straight bolt, then B7 can be considered as a substitute for F Grade
