Tolerance Class

'G' is the most commonly used Tolerance Class. Many times class 'C' is also used as per designer's requirement. '3G' class is used for general purpose assemblies while classes above 3 are progressively closer tolerance classes like 4G, 5G etc. and are suitable for loose fit. Example - '2G' class.
