1: Identifying Cap Screw Grades

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has created specifications that cover chemical and mechanical requirements for threaded and non-threaded fasteners as are used widely within automotive and other industries.

The American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) has created specifications that cover chemical and mechanical requirements for fasteners used in engineering applications, such as structural bolts used in building.

In the overall MRO (Maintenance Repair Operations) market, the wide majority of the hex head cap screws used are covered by SAE specifications. These cap screws are graded by the SAE by strength levels, and are head-marked to reflect the SAE grade and strength (See Table 3.1.1).
