When intergranular corrosion tests are required, they shall be as agreed upon between the seller and the purchaser. Permitted Variations in Dimensions and Weight 9.

When awtm corrosion is of concern, the purchaser should specify the corrosion test of One surface, to be the outside surface in bending, a408 be the original surface of the plate; however, surface preparation by light grinding is permitted.

All austenitic chromium-nickel types except the H types are expected to be capable of passing this test. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.

D Quenched in water, except that coiled product heat treated in a continuous annealing line shall be water quenched or rapidly cooled by other means. Special tests like intergranular corrosion test, permeability test, Charpy impact testing and tests for detrimental intermetallic phases in wrought asttm stainless steels shall be also be performed when required.

In the case of transverse zstm test specimens, the axis of bend shall be parallel to the direction of rolling. Packaging, Marking, and Loading Use of plates in this condition is generally con?

NOTE 2—The tolerances in this table include crown tolerances. The gage number shall not be a basis for rejection.

Finish for Strip The use of the gage number is discouraged as being an archaic term of limited usefulness not having general agreement on meaning. When polished on one side only, it is permitted to rough grind the other zstm in order to obtain the necessary? B Maximum deviation from a horizontal?

Such analysis shall be made by any of the commonly accepted methods that will positively identify the material. Heat treatment thermal cycles shall be separate from other thermal processing cycles; for example, in-process thermal cycles are not permitted as a substitute for the separate annealing cycle.

The manufacturer is permitted, if necessary, use a lower temperature resolution anneal or a stabilization anneal after a high temperature solution anneal in order to meet corrosion test requirements.
