Scope: This specification covers the requirements for heat-treatment of four classes of steel and the requirements for furnace equipment, test procedures and information for heat-treating procedures, heat-treating temperatures and material test procedures. This specification is applicable only to the heat treatment of raw material; it does not cover the requirements for the heat treatment of steel parts. This specification also describes procedures that, when followed, will produce the desired properties and material qualities within the limitations of the respective alloys.
