|Publication Date:||28 May 2015|
This specification outlines the conditions that enhance the risk of hydrogen embrittlement and stress corrosion cracking of steel components, fasteners, and cast iron and identifies requirements intended to minimize that risk.
The requirements established by this specification apply to both heat-treated and cold worked steel and cast iron components.
Hardness values in this specification are in the Vickers scale. All other readings are for reference only. The specified hardness refers to the hardness on the part drawing or product standard and not the actual part hardness.
