Standard Specification for Higher-Strength Martensitic Stainless Steel Plate, Sheet , and Strip
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel products in general):||77.140.01|
1.1 This specification covers martensitic stainless steels for various structural, architectural, pressure vessel, and heat-resisting applications. The mechanical properties of these steels are customarily, but not necessarily, developed by a suitable heat treatment generally referred to as tempering.
1.2 Steel products under this specification are available in two grades:
|Grade||Yield Strength, min, ksi (MPa)|
|40 (275)||40 (275)|
|50 (350)||50 (350)|
1.3 The maximum thickness of plates is limited only by the capacity of the composition to meet the specified mechanical property requirements; however, current practice normally limits the maximum thickness of plates furnished under this specification to 1 in. (25 mm).
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the "M" designation of this specification is specified in the purchase order.

This specification covers the standard for martensitic stainless steel for various structural, architectural, pressure vessel, and heat-resisting applications. The material shall undergo heat-treatment by tempering. The steel shall conform to the requirements as to chemical composition specified for carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and nitrogen. Mechanical testing shall be performed on the steel and shall conform to the specified values in mechanical properties such as yield strength, tensile strength, elongation, and Brinell hardness.View Less
