# METRIC HEX FLANGE LOCK NUT (WITH NYLON INSERT) DIMENSIONS

Dimensions of metric hex flange lock nuts (with nylon insert) are shown in the following chart according to ISO 7043 and ISO 12125 standards.

Some important notes from the ISO standards about hex flange lock nuts with nylon insert:

- ISO 7043 specifies the characteristics of prevailing torque type hexagon nuts with flange (with non-metallic insert) with threads from M5 to M20 inclusive, with product grade A for threads d ≤ M16 and product grade B for threads d > M16.

- Mechanical properties of ISO 7043 hex flange lock nuts: Steel - Property class 8, 9 and 10.

- ISO 12125 specifies the characteristics of prevailing torque type hexagon nuts with flange (with non-metallic insert) with metric fine pitch thread with nominal thread diameters d from 8 mm up to and including 20 mm, with product grade A for threads d ≤ M16 and product grade B for threads d > M16.

- Mechanical properties of ISO 12125 hex flange lock nuts: Steel - Property class 6, 8 and 10.

 Link Usage Metric Thread Size and Tolerance Calculator Calculates basic major, minor and pitch diameters of the metric external (bolt) thread and internal (nut) thread according to ISO 724:1993 standard. In addition to basic size calculations, tolerance calculations of different tolerance classes can be done according to ISO 965-1:1998 and ISO 965-2:1998 standards. Nut Grades, Identification Markings and Strength (Metric) Shows proof strength and Vickers and Brinell hardness values of metric nuts made of carbon steel and alloy steel. Prevailing Torque Values of Lock Nuts (Metric) Shows prevailing-on torque and prevailing-off torque values of metric lock nuts.
