    Revision of A403 / A403M - 13a Standard Specification for Wrought Austenitic Stainless Steel Piping Fittings

    Active Standard: A403 / A403M - 13a

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.22 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK45974

    1. Rationale

    Discussions at the May 5,2014 A01.22.02 meeting on differences between A234 9.4 and A403 8.2 and 8.3 revealed that A403 8.2 and 8.3 did not limit use of test results from starting material to wrought starting material, thus permitting use of data from cast starting material to represent the wrought finished product. This action revises 8.3 and 8.4 to preclude the use of data from cast starting material to represent the wrought finished product.
