ASTM F3125 Grade A325

In 2016 the specification A325 was withdrawn by ASTM and was replaced by ASTM F3125 with A325 as one of the six Grades of F3125.

F3125 Grade A325 is a Heavy Hex Head Style Bolt with a minimum Tensile Strength of 120 ksi. and can come in one of two types (Type 1 or Type 3). We currently stock only Type 1 so this information will be limited to a discussion of that type.
