ASTM International - ASTM A747/A747M-99
Standard Specification for Steel Castings, Stainless, Precipitation Hardening
|Publication Date:||10 May 1999|
|ICS Code (Iron and steel castings):||77.140.80|
1.1 This specification covers iron-chromium-nickel
1.2 These castings may be used in services requiring corrosion resistance and high strengths at temperatures up to 600°F [315°C]. They may be machined in the solution-annealed condition and subsequently precipitation hardened to the desired high-strength mechanical properties specified in Table 1 with little danger of cracking or distortion.
1.3 The material is not intended for use in the solution-annealed condition.
Note-If the service environment in which the material is to be used is considered conducive to stress-corrosion cracking, precipitation hardening should be performed at a temperature that will minimize the susceptibility of the material to this type of attack.
1.4 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the 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.
