ASTM WK88480

Revision of A182/A182M-23 Standard Specification for Forged or Rolled Alloy and Stainless Steel Pipe Flanges, Forged Fittings, and Valves and Parts for High-Temperature Service


The term "normalizing" is used to describe the heat treatment of grade F6a and other martensitic stainless grades, however a more appropriate term is "quench" or "austenitize and air quench" since the goal of the subject heat treatment is to achieve the full hardening capability of these alloys. Also changing the term "solutioning" to "solution treatment" to be consistent with A941 terms already in use for the subject heat treatment
