Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers stainless steel powder metallurgy (PM) structural components with minimum densities that are fabricated from prealloyed powder consisting primarily of iron, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and boron2 and are intended for use in corrosive service. Structural components shall be made by cold pressing and sintering prealloyed powder. The chemical composition; physical properties such as density; and mechanical properties such as tensile strength, elongation and hardness; are detailed.
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 steel powder metallurgy (PM) structural components with a 7.7-g/cm3 minimum density that are fabricated from prealloyed powder consisting primarily of iron, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, and boron2 and are intended for use in corrosive service.
1.2 With the exception of the values for density and the mass used to determine density, for which the use of the gram per cubic centimetre (g/cm3) and gram (g) units is the longstanding industry practice, the values in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
