This specification covers deformed and plain stainless steel bars for concrete reinforcement proposed to be used in applications requiring corrosion resistance or controlled magnetic permeability. For each specimen, one tension test, one bend test, if required, and one set of dimensional property tests shall be made. For martensitic materials, two hardness tests shall be performed per lot of material. If the results of the test fail to meet the specified minimum requirements, a retest shall be permitted on two random specimens for each original tension specimen failure from the lot. If a specimen fails a bend test due to reasons other than mechanical or flaws, a retest shall be permitted on two random specimens from the same lot.
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 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. The standard sizes and dimensions of deformed bars and their numerical designation shall be those listed in . The text of this specification references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the specification.
1.1.1 Supplementary requirement (S1) of an optional nature is provided. It shall apply only when specified by the purchaser. In order to obtain a controlled magnetic permeability product, steel conforming to Supplementary Requirement S1 should be ordered.
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.
Note 1: The austenitic and austenitic-ferritic (duplex) alloys shown in are known to be sold by producers to the requirements of this specification. It provides guidance and is not a mandatory chemical composition table. Other alloys may also provide desired properties; consult with the manufacturer for stainless steel alloy properties and availability. After adoption of , a mandatory chemical composition requirements table will be balloted in accordance with its requirements. This note and references to Specification will be simultaneously removed.
1.3 The requirements for introduction of new alloys into a mandatory chemical composition requirements table in this specification are given in .
1.4 Requirements for the relative deformation area of three-sided deformed bars are contained in .
1.5 Bars are of two minimum yield strength levels, namely, 60 000 psi [420 MPa] and 75 000 psi [520 MPa], designated as Grade 60  and Grade 75 , respectively.
1.6 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.
1.7 When stainless steel is to be welded, use a procedure suitable for the chemical composition and intended use or service.
Note 2: Welding of stainless steel reinforcement would occur after shipment from the producer. Structural welding should be performed in accordance with the latest edition of AWS D1.6/D1.6M, any other internationally accepted stainless steel welding code, or a procedure suggested by the material producer. AWS D1.6/D1.6M describes the proper selection of the filler metals, temperature control, as well as, performance, procedure qualification and inspection requirements.
1.8 This specification is applicable for orders in either inch-pound units (as Specification ) or in SI units (as Specification ).
1.9 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.
1.10 This specification does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this specification to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.11 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
