ASTM F468 UNS A96061 represents grade specification for Aluminum Alloy 6061 Bolts, Screw Fasteners. It covers both coarse and fine threaded Alloy 6061 Bolts, screws, stud bolts. Below is the chemical, mechanical and other requirements. ASTM F468 UNS A96061 Fasteners carry EN 10204 Type 3.1 Certification.

A Analysis shall regularly be made only for the elements specified in this table. If, however, the presend of other elements is suspected or indicated in amounts greater than the specified limits, further analysis shall be made to determine that these elements are not rpesent in excess of the specified limits.
B Elemens shown as balance shall be arithmetically computed by deducting the sum of the other named elements from 100.
C Titanium + Zirconium 0.20 %, max
D Titanium + Zirconium 0.25 %, max

A where both tension and hardness tests are performed, the tension tests shall take precedence for acceptance purposes. For alumium and titanium alloys, hardness tests are for information only.
B The yield tensile strength values for full size products shall be computed by dividing the yield and maximum tensile load by the stress area for the product diameter and thread pitch as given in table on tensile stress areads.
C Yield strength is the stress at which an offset of 0.2% gauge length occurs.
D Elongation is determined using a gauge length of 4 diameters of test specimen in accordance with Test Methods E8.
E "HF" denoted a hot formed product
F Aluminum alloy temper designations are in accordance with ANSI H35.1.
G Full size test mechanical properties apply to fasteners with a maximum diameter of 76 mm. Mechanical properties of larger sections shall be negotiated between the material manufacturer and the fastener producer.
H Ti 5 Class A requires wedge test tensile testing in accordance with section 6.6 & Ti 5.5 Class B requires wedge tensile testing in accordance with section 6.5.1 of ASTM F468.

|Threads / inch||Stress AreaA, in2||Threads / inch||Stress AreaA, in2||Threads / inch||Stress AreaA, in2|
A Tensile stress areas are computed using the following formula: As = 0.7854 [D- (0.9743/n)]2
As = Tensile stress area, in.2,
D = Nominal size (basic major diameter), in., and,
n = number of threads per inch.
