RE: stainless steel spec

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Round stock is commonly available in ASTM A276 or ASTM A479.  The most
common grade with yield and tensile strengths greater than A36 is Type 316.

Bolt stock is also available in ASTM A193.  Class 1B has a yield of 35 ksi
and Class 1C has a yield of 55 ksi.

Can someone tell me the ASTM specification for stainless steel rod (with
threaded ends) that has the same or better tensile strength as A36 rod?

Thank you,
