text or by endorsement, at the latest by March 2006, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at
the latest by March 2006.
EN 1515 "Flanges and their joints Bolting" consists of three Parts:
Part 1: Selection of bolting;
Part 2: Classification of bolt materials for steel flanges, PN designated;
Part 3: Classification of bolt materials for steel flanges, Class designated.
According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following
countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and

EN 1515-3:2005 (E)

Scope

This European Standard covers the classification of bolt materials used in combination with steel flanges according to EN 1759-1 (Class designated).
Bolt materials are listed in EN 1515-1; flange material groups are listed in EN 1759-1.

Normative references

The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this European Standard. For
dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced
document (including any amendments) applies.
EN 1759-1:2004, Flanges and their joint Circular flanges for pipes, valves, fittings and accessories, Class
designated Part 1: Steel flanges NPS 1/2 to 24.
EN 1515-1, Flanges and their joints Bolting Part 1: Selection of bolting.
EN 10269, Steels and nickel alloys for fasteners with specified elevated and/or low temperature properties.
EN ISO 898-1, Mechanical properties of fasteners made of carbon steel and alloy steel Part 1: Bolts,
screws and studs (ISO 898-1:1999).
EN ISO 3506-1, Mechanical properties of corrosion-resistant stainless steel fasteners Part 1: Bolts, screws
and studs (ISO 3506-1:1997).

Classification of bolt materials

The classification of bolt materials as given in Table 1 is based on the rules given in ASME B16.5 (see also
annex A).
All bolting materials are subject to the following limitations:
a)

High strength bolting (allowable stress 170 N/mm2 and above; see Table A.1) may be used in any
flanged joint. During assembly however, care should be taken not to over-stress the flanges (e. g. by
means of torque control).

b)

Intermediate strength bolting may be used in any flanged joint, provided the ability according to EN
1759-1:2004, 5.3.1 is verified.

c)

Low strength bolting (allowable stress 140 N/mm2 and below; see Table A.1) is restricted to CL 150 and
CL 300. The ability according to EN 1759-1:2004, 5.3.1 shall be verified, with special consideration of the
gasket.

Annex A
(informative)
Basic information
The classification has been developed with the following rules:
a) Classification according to ASME B16.5:1996, 5.3 and table 1B.
b) Allowable stresses for EN-materials are min of 1/3 Rm and 2/3 Reh at room temperature.
c) High strength is classified with an allowable stress of 170 N/mm2 and higher, low strength with 140 N/mm2
and lower. If an EN-material has an equivalent ASTM material according to EN 1515-1, the classification
according to B16.5 shall govern (see line 14, 21 and 23).
