ASTM - B783
Standard Specification for Materials for Ferrous Powder Metallurgy (PM) Structural Parts
|Publication Date:||1 October 2019|
|ICS Code (Powder metallurgy):||77.160|
This specification covers a variety of ferrous PM structural materials and includes a classification system or material designation code. The classification system used in this specification includes chemical composition, minimum tensile; 0.2 % offset yield strength for as-sintered materials; and minimum ultimate tensile strength for heat-treated materials (sinter hardened or quenched and tempered). It also contains minimum density and maximum coercive field strength requirements for iron-phosphorus materials.
Material classification is governed by the designation code which is explained in Appendix X1. The data provided display typical mechanical properties achieved under commercial manufacturing procedures. Physical and mechanical property performance characteristics can change as a result of subsequent processing steps beyond the steps designated in this standard.
With the exception of density values for which the g/cm3 unit is the industry standard, property values stated in inch-pound units are the standard. Values in SI units result from conversion. They may be approximate and are only for information.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
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.
