ASTM F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts are manufactured from medium carbon alloy steel that has been quenched and tempered (heat treated) to develop the desired mechanical values. This is the highest strength version of the F1554 specification, with a minimum yield strength of 105 ksi, covering anchor bolts in diameters ranging from 1/2″ through 3″.
F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts can be galvanized even though they are relatively high in strength. The galvanizing does not affect the mechanical properties of the anchor bolt and will not cause hydrogen embrittlement.
F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts should not be welded. Since they develop their strength characteristics through a heat treating process, applying heat (welding) in an uncontrolled environment could change the mechanical properties of the anchor bolt. The American Institute of Steel Construction Manual states “Anchor bolt material that is quenched and tempered (heat treated) should not be welded or heated.”
F1554 Grade 105 Threaded Rods and Anchor Bolts have a tensile strength of 125-150 ksi and a yield strength of 105 ksi minimum.
