Standard Test Methods for Chemical Analysis of Tool Steels and Other Similar Mediumand High-Alloy Steels
|Publication Date:||15 July 1993|
|ICS Code (Chemical analysis of metals):||77.040.30|
These test methods2 cover the chemical analysis of tool steels and other similar medium- and high-alloy steels having chemical compositions within the following limits:
The test methods in this standard are contained in the sections indicated below:
Test methods for the determination of several elements not included in this standard can be found in Test Methods E 30 and Test Methods E 1019.
Some of the concentration ranges given in 1.1 are too broad to be covered by a single test method and therefore this standard contains multiple test methods for some elements. The user must select the proper test method by matching the information given in the Scope and Interference sections of each test method with the composition of the alloy to be analyzed.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. In some cases, exceptions allowed in Practice E 380 are also used.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 5 and in special "Warning" paragraphs throughout these test methods.
2 These test methods represent revisions of methods covered by ASTM E 30, which appear in this publication. Typical alloy specification numbers for this category are listed in the Appendix.
