SAE J995 Grade 2 hex nuts are an economical, common low strength nut manufactured from low carbon steel. Dimensional specifications are governed by ASME B18.2.2. These nuts are equivalent in strength to ASTM A563 Grade A nuts. Grade 2 nuts are commonly used in bolting applications with Grade 2 bolts, Grade 5 bolts, and A307 bolts. Available in zinc plated finish. Zinc plating sacrifices itself, corroding before the base material, offering added corrosion resistance.
