ASTM WK89234

Revision of A484/A484M-24 Standard Specification for General Requirements for Stainless Steel Bars, Billets, Shapes, and Forgings


Section 6.2 of the standard provides for product check chemical analysis and Table 1 provides product analysis tolerances. It was brought to the attention of the subcommittee that section 12 “Number of Tests and Retests” includes chemical analysis, creating a conflict with section 6.2. In addition, it was noted that section 6.1.1 “Chemical Composition” creates a conflict with the definition of “Heat Analysis” in A941. The proposed changes are intended to eliminate conflicting statements and/or definitions.
