When intergranular corrosion is of concern, the purchaser should specify the corrosion test asttm The manufacturer is permitted, if necessary, satm a lower temperature resolution anneal or a stabilization anneal after a high temperature solution anneal in order to meet corrosion test requirements. Number of Tests If the hardness difference between the two ends of the coil exceeds 5 HRB, or equivalent, or if the material is temper rolled, tensile properties must be determined on both coil ends.

NOTE 7—The term continuously, as applied to heat treatment, is meant to describe a heat-treating operation in which one cut length follows another through the furnace.

ASTM A480 Specification

Interspersement of different melts is permissible if they are of approximately the same nominal thickness and are heat treated in the a4880 operating period and under the same conditions time and temperature. For S, the heat treatment is speci?


For S, see Note 6. It is permitted to obtain such specimens from specimens selected for mechanical testing. The tension test specimen shall conform to the appropriate sections of Test Methods and De? For the purposes of this speci? Hardness conversion shall be done using the a4480 tables in Test Methods and De? When the material is too thin to allow hardness testing using any of the Rockwell super? In the case of transverse bend test specimens, the axis of bend shall be parallel to the direction of rolling.

It is permitted to round the edges of the test specimen to a radius equal to one half the specimen thickness. For narrow strip, the following widths can be tested: All austenitic chromium-nickel types except the H types are expected to be capable of passing this test. However, it is not necessary to actually run the test unless it is speci?

Note that Practices A requires the test to be performed on sensitized specimens in the low-carbon and stabilized types and on specimens representative of the asshipped condition for other types. In the case of heavier plates of types other than L, LN, Cb, Astn, Cb, L, LN, Ti, L,S, and S, the applicability of this test shall be a matter for negotiation between the seller and the purchaser. However, it is permitted to specify Practice E of Practices A80 for Type H when intergranular corrosion is of concern.

In this case, the purchaser shall inform the seller and agree upon the requirements and these requirements shall be so stated on the purchase order. When intergranular corrosion tests are required, they shall be as agreed upon between the seller and the purchaser. It is permitted to remove the sheared edges to a depth of at least 1?

It is permitted to break the corners of the cross section of the specimen with a? One surface, to be the outside surface in bending, shall be the original surface of the plate; however, surface preparation by light grinding is permitted.

It is permitted to round the edges to a 1? When agreed by the seller and the purchaser, it is permitted to modify the cross section to 1? When intergranular corrosion tests are required, they shall be as agreed upon between the seller and purchaser.

All duplex austenitic-ferritic types that are listed in Test Methods A are expected to be capable of passing these tests.

However, it is not necessary to actually run the tests unless speci? The applicability of these tests to duplex stainless steels not listed in Test Methods A shall be a matter for negotiation between the seller and the purchaser.
