|Publication Date:||1 March 2020|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel forgings):||77.140.85|
This specification2 covers age-hardening stainless steel forgings for general use.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
Unless the order specifies an "M" designation, the material shall be furnished to inch-pound units.
NOTE 1-Bar products are covered by Specification A564/A564M.
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.
