1.1 This specification covers the requirements for plate, sheet, strip, and rolled bar in alloys C66300 and C68800.Note 1
Since alloy C68800 is frequently used in a variety of applications where yield strength and stress-corrosion resistance may be critical, it is recommended that drawings or samples of the part to be fabricated and details of application be submitted for use in establishing temper and treatment of material.Note 2
Alloy C66300 is covered by a patent. Interested parties are invited to submit information regarding the identification of an alternative(s) to this patented item to the ASTM International Headquarters. Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.
1.2 Values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. Values given in parentheses are for information only.
