Technical Background

  1. There is no ASME material specification, only an ASTM material specification.
  2. The specification or grade has been discontinued: information given is from the last available specification or code. See Table 3-1 for the specific source.
  3. Some grades of ASTM A-27 were not accepted in the ASME equivalent (SA-27).

Carbon steel is used in boilers, pressure vessels, heat exchanger, piping, and other moderate-temperature service systems in which good strength and ductility are desired. Significant other factors include cost, availability, and the ease of fabrication.
