Standard Specification for Free-Machining Stainless and Heat-Resisting Steel Bars, Hot Rolled or Cold-Finished
|Publication Date:||25 July 1975|
|ICS Code (Steel bars and rods):||77.140.60|
This specification covers hot-finished or cold-finished bars, except bars for forging.2 It includes rounds, squares, and hexagons in the more commonly used types of stainless and heat-resisting free-machining steels designed especially for optimum machinability and for general corrosion and high-temperature service. Stainless and heat-resisting steel bars other than the free-machining types are covered in a separate specification. 3
NOTE-The values stated in U.S. customary units are to be regarded as the standard
