2H Heavy Hex Nut, Plated

ASTM A194 Grade 2H heavy hex nuts are intended for use in flange bolting applications, as well as structural applications and with other high strength bolting. ASTM A194 covers carbon steel, alloy steel, and stainless steel nuts for bolts in high pressure or high temperature service. They are a common high strength nut used with many different bolting grades, including A193 Grade B7 studs. Dimensional specifications are governed by ASME B18.2.2. Heavy hex nuts provide increased bearing surface area over finished nuts such as J995 Grade 5 nuts. Available in plated finish. Plating sacrifices itself, corroding before the base material, offering added corrosion resistance.

Governing StandardsGrade 2H

ASTM A194 This specification covers a variety of carbon, alloy, and martensitic stainless steel nuts in the size range 1⁄4 through 4 in. and metric M6 through M100 nominal. It also covers austenitic stainless steel nuts in the size range 1⁄4 in. and M6 nominal and above. These nuts are intended for high-pressure or high temperature service, or both. Grade substitutions without the purchaser’s permission are not allowed.
ASME B18.2.2 Covers the complete general and dimensional data for the various types of inch series square and hex nuts, including machine screw nuts and coupling nuts.
ASME B1.1 UNC & UNF Class 2B Specifies the thread form, series, class, allowance, tolerance, and designation for unified screw threads.
