Standard Specification for Chromium and Chromium-Nickel Stainless Steel Plate, Sheet, and Strip for Pressure Vessels and for General Applications
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This specification covers chromium, chromium-nickel, and chromium-manganese-nickel stainless steel plate, sheet, and strip for pressure vessels and for general applications.
1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. 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.
1.3 This specification is expressed in both inch-pound and SI units. However, unless the order specifies the applicable "M" specification designation (SI units), the material shall be furnished in inch-pound units.
This document is correctly numbered ASTM A240/A240M because it features both inch-pound and metric measurements. This is notated in the document number (the A240/A240M means A240 inch-pound units/A240 Metric units). Because we have been tracking ASTM standards for so long (since the 1980's) you can look up the document either as ASTM A240 or ASTM A240/A240M.
