The ASTM A582 specification includes cold or hot finished bars, which are suitable for machining processes. ASTM A582 specification encompasses the following products in the more commonly used types of stainless steel, which can be producted either hot finished or cold finished.:
- Round bars
- Square bars
- Hex bars
These steels are designed especially for optimum machinability, as well as general corrosion and high-temperature service. At least one hardness testing is required midway between surface and center; this determines that the material conforms to hardness requirements.
