This specification covers the standard for stainless and heat-resisting chromium-nickel steel plate, sheet, and strip. The steel shall conform to the requirements as to chemical composition in carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. The material shall also conform to the mechanical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and hardness.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers stainless and heat-resisting chromium-nickel steel plate, sheet, and strip.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.
Note 1—Grades that were previously covered in both Specifications A 167 and A 240/A 240M have been removed from this specification and may now be supplied and purchased in compliance with Specification A 240/A 240M. The chemical and mechanical property requirements of these grades were identical in Specifications A 167 and A 240/A 240M at the time of removal from Specification A 167.
