|This specification2 covers chromium, chromium-nickel,
and chromium-manganese-nickel stainless steel plate, sheet, and
strip for pressure vessels and for general applications including
architectural, building, construction, and aesthetic
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to
be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each
system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall
be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two
systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
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 standard does not purport to address all of the safety
concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility
of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and
health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory
limitations prior to use.
