ASTM WK44113

    Revision of A827 / A827M - 11 Standard Specification for Plates, Carbon Steel, for Forging and Similar Applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A827 / A827M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.02 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    S746-13B A task group has been formed to address the phosphorus and sulfur levels in the steel standards covered by Committee A01.02. The goal is to align the levels of these two elements to be consistent with current standard metallurgical processes. While this may result in alignment of ASTM standards with other international standards covering similar steels, this would be a byproduct of the changes rather than the impetus for the changes. The task group has proposed a level of 0.030% maximum for each element for plate materials at this time.
