ASTM WK46284

    Revision of A240 / A240M - 14 Standard Specification for Chromium and Chromium-Nickel Stainless Steel Plate, Sheet, and Strip for Pressure Vessels and for General Applications

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: A240 / A240M - 15a

    Developed by Subcommittee: A01.17 | Committee A01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Adding a new alloy to A240. This new super-ferritic grade has been developed and patented (in Italy) for general applications. This grade with high Chromium content shows a very good corrosion resistance due to high chromium level, very low interstitial and stabilization. Mechanical properties are suitable for construction and many other applications.
