Standard Specification for Steel Bars, Carbon, Merchant Quality, M-Grades
|Publication Date:||1 July 2020|
|ICS Code (Steel bars and rods):||77.140.60|
This specification covers hot-wrought merchant quality carbon steel bars produced to a chemical composition. Merchant quality bars are used for structural and similar miscellaneous bar applications involving moderate cold bending, moderate hot forming, punching, and welding as used in the production of noncritical parts. Moderate cold bending involves a generous bend radius with the axis of the bend transverse to the direction of rolling.
Special quality hot-wrought carbon steel bars are covered in Specification A576.
Some end uses may require one or more of the available designations shown under Supplementary Requirements.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
