Attachment bolt recommendations

In typical applications, 8.8 class (SAE J429, Grade 5) hexagon head bolts can be used together with washers. If the load does not act perpendicularly toward the base, it may be necessary to use stronger, 10.9 class (SAE J429, Grade 8) bolts.

SKF housings can withstand loads resulting from tightening the attachment bolts to the torque values recommended by bolt manufacturers. SKF cannot guarantee that tightening to the recommended value will provide sufficient anchoring. Make sure that attachment bolts, dowels or stops, and a sufficiently strong support can accommodate all occurring loads.
