    and a minimum yield strength of 50,000 psi. Special high-strength fasteners, comparable in strength to SAE grade 5 bolts, are also available. Capacitor-discharge fasteners are generally made from C-1008 to C-1010 steels in the annealed condition. Tensile strengths are 40,000 to 50,000 psi. Austenitic
