Axial Tensile Fastener Testing

An Axial tensile test is a method for determining behavior of materials under axial tensile loading. The tests are conducted by fixturing the fastener into the test apparatus and then applying a force to the fastener by separating the testing machine crossheads.


Accredited Specifications

Test Method

  • ASTM F606/F606M


Test Method/Material and Property Requirements

  • ISO 898-1

Fastener testing allows you to determine the mechanical properties of externally and internally threaded fasteners, washers, direct tension indicators, and rivets. Testing may consist of a machined specimen or a full-size product. The type of fastener testing that will be described below applies to a full-size product testing. Fastener testing is not applicable to all. The head design, shank thickness, and product length can determine if the testing is required of the product.
