ASTM A276-08a Standard Specification for Stainless Steel Bars and Shapes
ASTM International / 01-Oct-2008 / 7 pages ASTM A276-08a
1.1 This ASTM A276-08a 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 A 314.
Note 2 – For free-machining stainless bars designed especially for optimum machinability, see Specification ASTM A 582/A 582M
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 inAnnual Book of ASTM Standards, Vol. 02.04.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
