ASTM-A502 › Standard Specification for Rivets, Steel, Structural
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers the chemical composition, mechanical (Brinell hardness), dimensional, and visual inspection requirements, and associated test methods for steel rivets used for structural fabricating purposes. The steel used to make the rivets shall be manufactured by the open-hearth, basic-oxygen, or electric-furnace process, and the corresponding rivets shall be made by the hot or cold heading process and are expected to be hot driven. The rivets are available in the following grades: Grade 1, carbon steel rivets for general purpose use; Grade 2, carbon manganese steel rivets for use with high strength carbon and high strength low alloy structural steels; and Grade 3, weathering steel rivets.
1.1 This specification covers three grades of steel rivets in diameters from 1/2 to 11/2 in. inclusive, for structural fabricating purposes. The grades are as follows:
Carbon steel rivets for general purpose use
Carbon manganese steel rivets for use with high strength carbon and high strength low alloy structural steels
Weathering steel rivets
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
