1.1 This specification covers deformed and plain stainless-steel bars for concrete reinforcement in cut lengths and coils used in applications requiring resistance to corrosion or controlled magnetic permeability.
1.2 The chemical composition of the stainless steel alloy shall be selected for suitability to the application involved by agreement between the manufacturer and the purchaser. This is an important consideration in achieving the desired corrosion resistance or controlled magnetic permeability, or both, because these properties are not provided by all stainless steels.
1.3 Requirements for the relative deformation area of three-sided deformed bars are contained in Annex A4.
1.5 Plain bars in sizes up to and including 2 in. [50.8 mm] in diameter in coils or cut lengths, when ordered, shall be furnished under this specification in Grade 60  and Grade 75 , respectively. Bending properties, when required, shall be by agreement between the manufacturer and purchaser. Requirements providing for deformations and marking shall not be applicable to plain bars.
1.6 Weldability of most stainless steel compositions is generally good, however, pre-weld or post-weld procedures, or both, are necessary. Where material is to be welded, a welding procedure suitable for the chemical composition and intended use or service shall be used. Retesting of physical properties should be considered following welding procedures depending upon the steel composition and welding operation involved.
1.8 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
