Description / Abstract:

This specification2 covers steel rivets for use in boilers and pressure vessels and steel bars for use in the manufacture of rivets.

Two grades are covered:

Grade A-Bars having a yield point of 23 000 psi (160 MPa) minimum with carbon 0.18% maximum.

Grade B-Bars having a yield point of 29 000 psi (200 MPa) minimum with carbon 0.28 % maximum.

Rivets are manufactured from the applicable bar grade.

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.

2 For ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code applications see related Specification SA-31 in Section II of that Code.
