F1554 Grade 105
Overview
ASTM F1554 grade 105 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 1/4" through 3".

Galvanizing
F1554 grade 105 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 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 Ninth Edition of the AISC (American Institute of Steel
Construction) Steel Construction Manual (page 4-4) states, "Anchor bolt material that is quenched and
tempered (heat treated) should not be welded or heated."

Supplementary Testing
A supplementary requirement S4 or S5 also exists which designates Charpy Impact testing requirements.
