ASTM A743 Standard Specification for Castings, Iron-Chromium, Iron-Chromium-Nickel, Corrosion Resistant, for General Application
ASTM International / 01-Mar-2006 / 7 pages ASTM A743 pdf
1.1 This ASTM A743 specification covers iron-chromium and iron-chromium-nickel alloy castings for general corrosion-resistant application. The grades covered by this specification represent types of alloy castings suitable for broad ranges of application which are intended for a wide variety of corrosion environments. Note 1For alloy castings for severe corrosion-resistant service, reference should be made to Specification A 744/A 744M. For general heat-resistant alloy castings, reference should be made to Specification A 297/A 297M. For nickel alloy castings for corrosion-resistant service, reference should be made to Specification A 494/A 494M.
1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification. Inch-pound units are applicable for material ordered to Specification A 743 and SI units for material ordered to Specification A 743M.
