STANDARD SPECIFICATION FOR FREE-MACHINING STAINLESS AND HEAT- RESISTING STEEL BARS, HOT-ROLLED OR COLD- FINISHED
|Publication Date:||21 July 1988|
|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
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. SI units are provided for information only.
2 For bars for reforging, see Specification A 314.
3 For bars other than those of the free-machining type, see Specification A 276.
