Developed by the powder forging (PF) commercial parts manufacturing industry, each section of the standard contains easy-to-read data tables and explanatory information for materials listed.
Property data are included for four PF material systems - Carbon Steel, Copper Steel, Low Alloy PF-42XX and PF-46XX Steels in the normalized and quenched & tempered conditions. Chemical composition and minimum density requirements are cited. Data tables (Inch-Pound and SI Units) include typical property values for Ultimate Strength, Yield Strength, Elongation, Reduction of Area, Rockwell Hardness, Impact Energy, Compressive Yield Strength and Mean Fatigue Limit.
This standard provides the design and materials engineer with the latest engineering property data and information available in order to specify materials made by the powder forging process. Ensure that your quality assurance/laboratory staff and your sales and marketing personnel/representatives have the latest edition of this standard.
