What is a 10mm bolt in standard?

The equivalent imperial size of a 10mm socket is a 3/8 socket. Imperial sizes are known as SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) or Standard.

Is M10 same as 10mm?

If the size is M10 x 25, that would mean that the diameter is 10 mm. Since there is no thread pitch listed, the fastener is assumed to have a coarse thread. The 25 indicated a length of 25 mm. A matching nut would be labeled M10, which also doesn’t require a thread pitch since it’s a course thread fastener.

What is a M10 bolt?

M10-1.50 Stainless Steel Hex Cap Bolts / screws. Hex bolts are also known as hex cap screws, tap bolts or machine bolts. Hex bolts have an external hex head and drive with a socket. These bolts have machine threads for use with nuts or a tapped hole with same size and thread pitch.

Is M12 the same as 12mm?

Yes. M12 is a 12mm diameter thread. You have to be sure the thread pitch measured in threads per millimeter (1.5 here) is the same as what u need.

How do I know what size bolt I need?

To measure the diameter of screws and bolts, you measure the distance from the outer thread on one side to the outer thread on the other side. This is called the major diameter and will usually be the proper size of the bolt.

What is the difference between M10 and M12?

The only difference between the M10 and M12 is the external appearance.

Do you torque the nut or bolt?

In simple terms, you need torque to create tension in a bolt. You use torque to turn a nut onto a bolt and then to stretch the bolt, making it a solid spring that clamps the two materials together.

What does 8.8 mean on a bolt?

So, in English, a PC 8.8 bolt is a bolt with a nominal tensile strength of 800 MPa and a nominal yield strength that is 80% of the bolt’s nominal tensile strength, or 640 MPa.

What grade is a 9.8 bolt?

Higher Number Means Stronger

A metric bolt designated as ISO class 6.8 roughly corresponds in strength to an SAE Grade 2 bolt. Bolts of ISO class 8.8 and the slightly stronger class 9.8 roughly correspond to an SAE Grade 5 bolt. An ISO Class 10.9 bolt roughly corresponds to an SAE Grade 8 bolt.
