Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

---------------------- Page: 9 ----------------------
ISO 683-5:2017(E)
7.1.2 Chemical composition

The chemical composition determined by cast analysis shall comply with the values in Table 3.

Permissible deviations between the limiting values for cast analysis and the values for product analysis

are given in Table 4.

The product analysis shall be carried out when specified at the time of enquiry and order (see B.5).

7.1.3 Mechanical properties

The requirements for the mechanical properties are for steels delivered in the “soft annealed condition”

(+A) according to the maximum Brinell hardness (see Table 5) and for steels delivered in the “quenched

and tempered condition” (+QT) according to the values cited in Table 6.
7.2 Machinability
All steels are in the condition: “soft annealed” (+A) machinable.

Where a further improved machinability is required, special heat treatments may be agreed at the time

of enquiry and order.
7.3 Cold shearability

Under suitable shearing conditions (avoiding local stress peaks, preheating, application of blades with a

profile adapted to that of the product, etc.), all steels are shearable in the “soft annealed” (+A) condition.

7.4 Grain size

Unless otherwise agreed at the time of enquiry and order, the steel shall show a fine grain structure with

an austenitic grain size of 5 and finer when tested in accordance with ISO 643. For verification, see B.3.

The ferrite content in the core of the quenched and tempered product shall be determined on one

microsection per cast, dimension and heat treatment batch, if agreed at the time of enquiry and order.

7.5 Non-metallic inclusions
7.5.1 Microscopic inclusions

The special steels shall have a certain degree of cleanness; however, verification of the non-metallic

inclusion content requires a special agreement. If there is such an agreement at the time of enquiry

and order, the microscopic non-metallic inclusion content shall be determined to an agreed procedure

and within agreed limits in accordance with ISO 4967 or another standard, e.g. regional standards

EN 10247 or JIS G 0555.
7.5.2 Macroscopic inclusions

This requirement is applicable to the verification of the macroscopic inclusions in special steels. If

verification is agreed, the method and acceptance limits shall be agreed at the time of enquiry and order.

7.6 Internal soundness

The steels shall be free from internal defects likely to have an adverse effect (see B.4).

7.7 Surface quality

7.7.1 All products shall have a smooth surface finish appropriate to the manufacturing processes

applied.

ISO 683-5:2017(E)

7.7.2 Minor surface imperfections which may occur under normal manufacturing conditions, such as

prints originating from rolled-in scale, are not to be regarded as defects.

7.7.3 Bars and wire rod are delivered with surface class 1z2 in accordance with ISO 9443 and hot-rolled

plates and wide flats shall be delivered with a surface in accordance with ISO 7788, unless otherwise

agreed at the time of enquiry and order.

Where no International Standard on the surface quality of steel products exists, detailed requirements

referring to this characteristic shall, where appropriate, be agreed at the time of enquiry and order.

It is more difficult to detect and eliminate surface discontinuities from coiled products than from cut

lengths. This should be taken into account when agreements on surface quality are made.

NOTE Bars and wire rod for cold heading and cold extrusion are covered fully by ISO 4954.

7.7.4 The removal of surface defects by welding shall only be permitted with the approval of the

customer or his/her representative.

If surface discontinuities are repaired, the method and maximum depth of removal shall be agreed at

the time of enquiry and order.
7.8 Decarburization

Requirements relating to the permissible depth of decarburization may be agreed at the time of enquiry

and order.

The depth of decarburization shall be determined in accordance with the micrographic method

specified in ISO 3887.
7.9 Shape, dimensions and tolerances

The shape, dimensions and tolerances of the products shall comply with the requirements agreed at

the time of enquiry and order. The agreements shall, as far as possible, be based on corresponding

International Standards (see Annex D), otherwise on suitable national standards.
8 Inspection
8.1 Testing procedures and types of documents

8.1.1 Products complying with this document shall be ordered and delivered with one of the inspection

documents as specified in ISO 10474. The type of document shall be agreed upon at the time of enquiry
