Standard ASTM F0606M-98
1.1 These test methods establish procedures for conducting tests to determine the mechanical properties of metric externally and internally threaded fasteners, washers, and rivets.
1.2 Property requirements and the applicable tests for their determination are specified in individual product standards. In those instances where the testing requirements are unique or at variance with these standard procedures, the product shall specify the controlling testing requirements.
1.3 These test methods describe mechanical tests for determining the following properties:
