Re: ASTM Specification Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

You can view a summary of ASTM A606-98 (Standard Specification for Steel,
Sheet and Strip, High-Strength, Low-Alloy, Hot-Rolled and Cold-Rolled, with
Improved Atmospheric Corrosion Reduction) on ASTM's web site.  The home is
at, from which you would want to go to "ASTM Store",
then "Search for Individual Standards".

ASTM will charge your credit card $25.00 to allow you to download a .pdf
file containing the full text of the standard.  Outside of complaining about
having to pay for it, the service works fine, I downloaded a couple of
standards I needed yesterday -- five minutes and you can print them out if
you're a hard copy kind of guy.
