Hex Bolts, A307 Grade A, Zinc Yellow (inch)

Hex Bolts, A307 Grade A, Zinc Yellow (inch)
Zinc Yellow Hex Bolt
Grade A, A307 hex bolts are externally threaded fasteners made of carbon steel. 

Zinc plating of low carbon steel provides protection against corrosion and is relatively inexpensive.  Bolts with zinc yellow plating are plated with zinc followed by a yellow chromate conversion coating.   The yellow chromate gives the zinc a yellow, golden appearance making it easy to distinguish.


Hex bolts fall under The American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME) standard category “Bolts, Studs and Threaded Rod”.  These bolts are fully threaded or partially threaded depending on the length with a six sided, hexagonal head.  
 
The ASME standard covers hex bolt dimensional specifications designated by ASME B18.2.1.  The chemical and mechanical specifications included in ASME B18.2.1 are governed by The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
