    A 859/A 859M Steel Forgings, Low-Carbon Age-Hardening Nickel-Copper-Chromium-Molybdenum Alloy Steel, for Pressure Vessel Components
    A 891 Precipitation Hardening Iron Base Superalloy Forgings for Turbine Rotor Disks and Wheels
    A 909Specification for Steel Forgings, Microalloy, for General Industrial Use
    A 940Specification for Vacuum Treated Steel Forgings, Alloy, Differentially Heat Treated, for Turbine Rotors
    A 965/A 965MSpecification for Steel Forgings, Austenitic, for Pressure and High Temperature Parts

    1.2 In case of conflict in requirements, the requirements of the individual material specifications shall prevail over those of this specification.

    1.3 The purchaser may specify additional requirements (see 4.2.3) that do not negate any of the provisions of either this specification or of the individual material specifications. The acceptance of any such additional requirements shall be dependent on negotiations with the supplier and must be included in the order.

    1.4 If, by agreement, forgings are to be supplied in a partially completed condition, that is, all of the provisions of the product specification have not been filled, then the material marking (see Section 17 ) and certification (see Section 16 ) shall reflect the extent to which the product specification requirements have been met.
