ASTM A921/A921M-93(2022)

Standard Specification for Steel Bars, Microalloy, Hot-Wrought, Special Quality, for Subsequent Hot Forging

1.1This specification covers hot-wrought, special quality microalloyed carbon steel bars intended for use as hot forging stock. The bars shall be hot-wrought, as-wrought, unless thermal treatment is necessary to ensure cold shearability.

1.2The bars shall be furnished to chemical composition only. Chemical composition is based on standard carbon steel grades modified to include microalloying elements such as columbium (niobium), vanadium, or molybdenum. Desired mechanical properties are developed in the subsequent hot forging and controlled cooling operations.

1.3Sections and sizes of bar steel available are covered in Specification A29/A29M.

1.4Supplementary Requirements S1 to S6 are provided for use when additional controls or requirements are desired. These shall apply only when specified on the purchase order.

1.5The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text and tables, SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.6Unless the order specifies the applicable "M" specification designation, the material shall be furnished to the inch-pound units.

1.7This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
