Surface Discontinuities on General Application Bolts, Screws, and Studs
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This SAE Recommended Practice defines, illustrates, and specifies allowable limits for various types of surface discontinuities that may occur during the manufacture and processing of bolts, screws, and studs in sizes through 24 mm or 1 in diameter inclusive with lengths to 150 mm or 6 in inclusive, having specified minimum tensile strengths of 900 MPa or 120 000 psi and greater, which are primarily intended for use in automotive assemblies.
The basic recommended practice does not include inspection sampling requirements. It is intended that the purchaser shall specify, in the original inquiry and purchase order, the inspection sampling requirements which the producer must satisfy to demonstrate the acceptability of bolts and screws with respect to surface discontinuities.

The Fasteners Committee is dedicated to serving the users of fasteners by identifying the need for and developing and maintaining Standards, Recommended Practices and Information Reports in the area of fasteners (including nuts, bolts, washers, screws, pins, rivets and other fasteners) for use with various Land-Sea vehicular applications. Areas addressed include coding, identification, dimensional, performance and procurement requirements as well as quality, shipping, storage, testing methods, application and installation guidelines. The SAE Fastener Committee interacts with other SAE committees and other technical societies, international standards organizations and government agencies to provide global standardization and avoid duplication of effort.
