This specification covers the standard for stainless and heat-resisting chromium-nickel steel plate, sheet, and strip. The steel shall conform to the requirements as to chemical composition in carbon, manganese, phosphorus, sulfur, silicon, chromium, nickel, and molybdenum. The material shall also conform to the mechanical properties such as tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and hardness.
