    This specification covers electrolytic manganese classified into Grades A (regular), B (intermediate hydrogen), C (low hydrogen), D (4.5% nitrogen bearing), E (6%nitrogen bearing) and F (weld graded powder). The specimens shall conform to the required chemical compositions of manganese, sulfur, hydrogen, nitrogen, iron, carbon, phosphorus, silicon, and aluminum.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers several grades of electrolytic manganese designated as follows:





    Intermediate Hydrogen


    Low Hydrogen


    4.5 % Nitrogen Bearing


    6 % Nitrogen Bearing


    Weld Grade Powder


    1.2 Units—The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.2.1 This specification is expressed in both inch-pound units and in SI units (within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets); however, unless the purchase order or contract specifies the applicable M specification designation (SI units), the inch-pound units shall apply.

    2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
