ASTM A276/A276M - 17 - Standard Specification for Stainless Steel Bars and Shapes

ASTM A276/A276M - 17

Standard Specification for Stainless Steel Bars and Shapes

Status : Current   Published : March 2017



1.1 This specification covers hot-finished or cold-finished bars except bars for reforging ( Note 1). It includes rounds, squares, and hexagons, and hot-rolled or extruded shapes, such as angles, tees, and channels in the more commonly used types of stainless steels. The free-machining types ( Note 2) for general corrosion resistance and high-temperature service are covered in a separate specification.

Note 1:  For bars for reforging, see Specification A314.

Note 2:  For free-machining stainless bars designed especially for optimum machinability, see Specification A582/A582M.

Note 3:  There are standards covering high nickel, chromium, austenitic corrosion, and heat-resisting alloy materials. These standards are under the jurisdiction of ASTM Subcommittee B02.07 and may be found in Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Vol. 02.04.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. The inch-pound units shall apply unless the “M” designation of this specification is specified in the order.
