Abrasive and Fastening Solutions Inc. is a proud manufacturer of ASTM F1554 Grade 55 Bent Anchor Bolts. Using materials made and melted in the United States of America to offer the finest quality bars. F1554 Grade 55 steel bar is a designed strength, low to medium carbon content grade. It has a 55 ksi yield strength which is required by the F1554 specification for anchor bolt and fastener applications. While Bent Anchor Bolts are not as popular to the rise in demand for a straight anchor rod, there are many applications and parts of the country that still utilize the bent anchor bolt.
ASTM International is one of the largest voluntary standards developing organizations in the world. They are a not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for the development and publication of international voluntary consensus standards for materials, products, systems and services.
Bent Anchor Bolts are made with a 90 degree bend at the end of the rod used as the anchor point in concrete for a cast in place anchor. Using this method can alleviate the use of a nut and or plate washer on the bottom of a Double End Anchor Rod.
Our Bent Anchor Bolts are made using a roll threading machine. Rolled threads are formed by pressing threading dies into the shank to displace the surplus of the metal outward. The original rod diameter must be slightly less than the nominal diameter, although the root area will still be critical, unless the rod end is upset. The steel is cold-worked, compressing its grain and increasing the yield and tensile strength, generally from 10 to 30 percent. Roll threading is the most productive manner in manufacturing Bent Anchor Bolts.
