    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the X-ray fluorescence spectrometric analysis of low-alloy steels and cast irons for the following elements in the ranges indicated.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E01 on Analytical Chemistry for Metals, Ores, and Related Materials, this test method was withdrawn in January 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the X-ray fluorescence spectrometric analysis of low-alloy steels and cast irons for the following elements in the ranges indicated:

    ElementsMass Fraction Range, %
    Manganese0.20 to 1.50
    Nickel0.10 to 1.00
    Chromium0.10 to 1.00
    Molybdenum0.04 to 0.40
    Copper0.05 to 0.30
    Vanadium0.03 to 0.25

    Note 1—These mass fraction ranges can be extended by the use of suitable reference materials. The detection limit for the elements is lower than the listed minimum value. The ranges represent the actual levels at which this test method was tested.

    1.2 This standard 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 standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
