ASTM WK80562

Revision of A897/A897M-16 Standard Specification for Austempered Ductile Iron Castings


The current standard does not address the possible degradation of properties with increasing section thickness. The proposed revision recommends the addition of a non-mandatory appendix that would provide guidelines for the purchaser and manufacturer to consider when agreeing to minimum mechanical properties at the time of purchase.
