QCananA194grade2HnutbesubstitutedforanA563gradeDHnut?Ifso,
doesitworktheotherwayaround...CananA563gradeDHnutbe
substitutedforanA194grade2Hnut?

A BothASTMA194Grade2HnutsandASTMA563gradeDHnutsarehighstrengthnutsthatundergoaheattreatingprocess
requiredtodeveloptheirstrengthcharacteristics.However,theyarenotnecessarilyinterchangeable.

AnA194Grade2HnutcanalwaysbesubstitutedforanA563GradeDHnut.Infact,theASTMA563nutspecification
specificallystatesthatsubstitutinganA194Grade2Hisacceptable.

ASTMA563Table3NoteDstates:

NutsmadeinaccordancewiththerequirementsofSpecificationA194/A194M,Grade2H,andmarkedwithitsgrade
symbolareanacceptableequivalentforGradeDHnuts.WhenA194zinccoatedinchseriesnutsaresupplied,thezinc
coating,overtapping,lubricationandrotationalcapacitytestingshallbeinaccordancewithSpecificationA563.

Duetoavailabilityand/orcostissues,ASTMA194Grade2HnutsmaybepreferabletoanASTMA563GradeDHnut.Itisnot
uncommonforA563GradeDHnutstobecompletelyunavailableinsomediametersandfinishes.Thereverseisalsotruefor
A194Grade2Hnuts,whichcanbeunavailableorimpracticalfromacostperspectiveincertaindiametersandfinishes.Does
thismeanasuppliershouldsubstituteA563GradeDHnutsforA194Grade2Hnuts?

Theanswerisno.AnASTMA563gradeDHnutmaybesubstitutedforanASTMA194grade2Hnutundermost,butnot
all,circumstances.A194Grade2HnutsundergoadditionalheattreatingandtestingprocessesthatA563GradeDHarenot
subjectedto.ThisadditionalprocessingandtestingallowsA194Grade2Hnutstobeusedinhightemperatureapplications.In
particular,ASTMA193GradeB7(ahightemperatureboltspecification)specificallyrequirestheuseofA194nuts.Thoughboth
gradesofnutareidenticalintermsofstrength,A563GradeDHnutsarenotanacceptablesubstitutionforthisbolt
specification.
