SAE AMS 5640T:2003 pdf download Steel, Corrosion-Resistant, Bars, Wire, and Forgings 18Cr – 9.0Ni Free Machining
1.1 Form: This specification covers three types of a free-machining, corrosion-resistant steel in the form of bars, wire, forgings, and forging stock.
1.2 Application: These products have been used typically for parts on which the amount of machining warrants use of a free-machining grade of steel requiring corrosion resistance similar to the 18-8 type steels but not subjected to temperatures exceeding 700 °F (371 °C) during fabrication or in service, but usage is not limited to such applications.
1.3 Classification:
The steels covered by this specification are classified as follows:
Type 1: 18Cr – 9.0Ni – 0.28S
Type 2: 18Cr – 9.0Ni – 0.14P – 0.28Se
Type 3: 18Cr – 8.5Ni – 3.5Mn – 0.28S
1.3.1 Unless a specific type is ordered, any type may be supplied.
The issue of the following documents in effect on the date of the purchase order forms a part of this specification to the extent specified herein. The supplier may work to a subsequent revision of a document unless a specific document issue is specified. When the referenced document has been cancelled and no superseding document has been specified, the last published issue of that document shall apply.
