# ISO 724 - Metric Threads

## Dimensions of metric threads according ISO 724.

ISO 724 specifies basic dimensions of metric threads in accordance with ISO 261. Dimensions refer to the basic profile in accordance with ISO 68.

The pitch varies from coarse to extra fine with up to 5 different pitches for some dimensions. The thread angle is 60o and the thread depth is 0.614 x pitch.

The table below indicates some of the most used coarse threads up to size M 68. Note that the ISO 724 standard specifies threads up to M 300. The table below is not complete.

It is common to designate metric fine threads with the capital M plus an indication to their nominal outer diameter and their pitch:

M size x pitch

Example:

M 10 x 1.5

The table below indicates the typically used finer threads up to size M 100. Note that the ISO 724 standard specifies threads up to M 300.
