ASTM WK46040

    Revision of A985 / A985M - 13 Standard Specification for Steel Investment Castings General Requirements, for Pressure-Containing Parts

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A985 / A985M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.18 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Discussions at the May 6, 2014, meeting of A01.18, about requirements to add a material to a specification referencing A985/A985M, made clear that this specification does not include any annexes addressing requirements for adding new materials, or for adding materials that are not new, but that exist in other A01casting specifications. This action proposes such Annexes similar to X2 in A703 and similar to those in many A01 General Requirements specifications for wrought materials.
