ISO 898-7:1992,Mechanical properties of fasteners — Part 7:Torsional test and minimum torques for boltsand screws with nominal diameters 1 mm to 10 mm
ISO 6507-1, Metallic materials — Vickers hardness test — Part 1: Test method
Tapping screws shall be made from cold heading, case hardening quality steel.
The minimum surface hardness after heat treatment shall be 450 HV 0,3(see ISO 6507-1).4.1.2Case depth
The case depth shall conform to the values given in Table 1.
The core hardness after heat treatment shall be
270 HV 5 to 370 HV 5 for threads ≤ ST3,9, and270 HV 10 to 370 HV 10 for threads ≥ST4,2.
The microstructure shall show no band of free ferrite between the case and core.
4.2.1 Thread-forming capability
Tapping screws shall form a mating thread without deforming their own thread when driven into a test plate, inaccordance with 6.2.1.
Tapping screws shall have a torsional strength such that the torque necessary to cause failture, when tested inaccordance with 6.2.2，shall equal or exceed the minimum torque values given in Table 3 for the applicablescrew threads.
For routine acceptance tests, the drive test, torsional test and core hardness test may be used, but for refereepurposes all requirements specified in this International Standard shall be satisfied.
6.1Test methods for the metallurgical requirements
6.1.1Surface hardness test
The Vickers hardness test shall be carried out in accordance with ISO 6507-1.
The impression of the pyramid shall be made on a flat face, preferably on the screw head.
6.1.2case depth – Microscopic test
Case depth shall be measured at the thread flank mid-point between crest and root or, in the case of smallertapping screws up to ST3,9, in the root of the thread.
For referee purposes, a micro hardness plot shall be made using a Vickers indenter and a 300 g load on thethread profile of a properly prepared metallographic specimen. The case depth shall be the point at which thehardness recorded is 30 Hv above the actual core hardness.
6.1.3core hardness test
The Vickers core hardness test shall be caried out in accordance with ISO 6507-1 at the mid-radius of atransverse section through the screw taken at a distance sufficiently behind the point of the screw to bethrough the full minor diameter.
6.1.4 Microstructure test
The microstructure test shall be carried out by metallographic examination.
6.2Test methods for the mechanical requirements
The sample screw (coated or uncoated, as received) shall be driven into a test plate until a thread of fulldiameter is completely through the test plate.
The test plate shall be made from low carbon steel with a carbon content not exceeding 0,23 %.The hardnessof the plate shall be 130 HV to 170 HV measured in accordance with IS0 6507-1.The thickness of the plateshall conform to the values given in Table 2.
The test hole shall be drilled, or punched and redrilled, or reamed to the hole diameter specified in Table 2 forthe size of screw being tested.
