Copyright © 1987 by ‘THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS Printed in USA FOREWORD (Tis Foreword is ot part of ASME/ANS! B18.3.5M-1986.) American National Standards Committee B18 for the standardization of bolts, screws, nuts, rivets, and similar fasteners was organized in March 1922 as Sectional Committee BIS, under the aegis of the American Engincering Standards Committee (later the American Standards Association, then the United States of America Standards Institute and, as of ‘October 6, 1969, the American National Standards Institute) with the Society of Automo- tive Engineers and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as joint sponsors. Subcommittee 9 was established in April of 1929 10 undertake development and oversee maintenance of standards covering socket head cap screws and set screws. In line with agen. ‘ral realignment of the subcommittee structure on April 1, 1966, Subcommittee 9 was redes- nated Subcommittee 3. Over the intervening years this activity has produced several ver sions of American National Standards covering inch series socket cap, shoulder, and set serews bearing the BI8.3 designation. At the December 4, 1974 meeting of American National Standards Committee B18, Sub- commitice 3 was assigned the task of preparing standards for metric series socket screw products paralleling that contained inthe latest ANSI B18.3 document. The Subcommittee \was also instructed to continue coordination with the International Standards Organiza- tion, ISO Technical Committee 2, and Working Group 3 under 1 tent possible, keep the proposals for metric standards under development in conformance with agreements reached therein. ‘Subsequent meetings of Subcommittee 3 held in February 1975 and January 1976 re- sulted in general agreement on the following basic principles to be considered in developing the metric version of the standard. (a) Toassure consumers continuity of performance integrity consistent with inch socket screw products, the metric standards should maintain the same quality levels as their inch counterparts. (b) To facilitate and expedite the processing, acceptance, and adoption of the metric ver- sions, proposals for the various product categories should be prepared as separate and com- plete product standards. (©) To promote understanding and assimilation during the transition t0 metric, the di- ‘mensional symbols, designations, terminology, and basic formats of the metric standards should be kept similar 10 those used in the ANSI B18.3 document There sno present or proposed ISO document for hexagon socket flat countersunk head cap serews, and the work in ISO/TC2/WG3is proceeding slowly. Three different proposals have been submitted to WG3 for consideration and a draft document com! features of these proposals was circulated to the industry and many users. At the Subcom= ‘mittee meeting of May 1982, it was voted to submit this draft, as modified, as a proposed standard. It is noted that these screws are functionally interchangeable with those recently adopted by the United Kingdom as BSI 4168-1982, with the exception of the class of thread fit, with the U.S. document specifying class 4g6q in line with past practice. ‘The document was modified to suit the ASME/ANSI format and was submitted for letter ballot vote to ASME Committee B18 and for public review. It was granted recognition as an ‘American National Standard on April 8, 1983. AA periodic review of the standard, undertaken by the Subcommittee in 1985, resulted in agreement that the document should be revised to add corrosion-resistant steel and to incorporate by reference ASTM documents for the appropriate mechanical, chemical, and testing requirements for the hexagon socket flat countersunk head cap screw products. A proposal containing these changes, as well as editorial corrections, was prepared and bal- loted by leter ballot to ASME Committee B18. Following approval by ASME, the proposal ‘was submitted to the American National Standards Institute and designated an American ‘National Standard on September 25, 1986.

Also included are appendices cov- ‘ering formulas for dimensions, part numbering sys- tem and preferred sizes for government use, and thread dimensions. The application of these screws is. limited by their design as noted below. This product is designed and recommended for ap- plications where a flush seating socket head screw is desired. Wrenchability is limited by the socket size and. key engagement. Because of the head configuration, this product is not recommended where maximum fa tigue resistance is required. 1.1.2 The inclusion of dimensional data in ‘Standard is not intended to imply that all of the prod- ‘ucts described are stock production sizes. Consumers should consult with manufacturers concerning lists of stock production sizes. 1.1.3 Screws purchased for government use shall conform to this Standard and to the requirements of Appendix I. 1.2 Interchangeability Hexagon socket flat countersunk head cap screws ‘manufactured to this Standard are intended for struc- tural use. There isno ISO standard in existence for the ‘product at this time, and this design differs from and isnot interchangeable with many similar metric parts. Iis, however, functionally interchangeable with BS 4168-1982, and may be substituted for those parts. meters (mm) and apply before plating unless stated otherwise. 1.4 Options Options, where specified, shall be at the discretion of the manufacturer unless agreed upon otherwise by ‘manufacturer and purchaser. 1.5 Responsibility for Modification ‘The manufacturer shall not be held responsible for ‘malfunctions of product due to plating or other modi- fications, when such plating or modification is not ac- complished under his control or direction. {6 Terminology For definitions of terms relating to fasteners or to ‘component features thereof used in this Standard, re- fer to ANSI BI8.12, Glossary of Terms for Mechani cal Fasteners. 1.7 Designation Hexagon socket flat countersunk head cap screws ‘conforming to this Standard shall be designated by the following data in the sequence shown: (@) Specification (ASME/ANSI document) num ber followed by a dash; (®) Nominal size of screws (©) Thread pitch, preceded by x; ASME/ANS!818.3.5M-1988 (2) Nominal screw length, preceded by x; (©) Product name.
