ASTM Standard List: Ferro Alloys, Other Materials and Terms and Definitions


ASTM specifications represent a consensus among producers, specifiers, fabricators, and users of steel mill products. ASTM’s designation system for metals consists of a letter (A for ferrous materials) followed by an arbitrary sequentially assigned number. These designations often apply to specific products, for example A548 is applicable to cold-heading quality carbon steel wire for tapping or sheet metal screws.

This article contains a list of standards that covers among other things:

  • Standards for numerous ferro-alloys
  • Other materials not classified by the standard categories available
  • Terms and definitions giving guidance on terminology used in testing methodology and other topical areas

For more information on the ASTM designation system see our related article:
Introduction to the ASTM Standard Designation.
