Heat treatable steels, alloy steels and free-cutting steels - Part 2: Alloy steels for quenching and tempering (ISO 683-2:2016)

ISO 683-2:2016 specifies the technical delivery requirements for
- semi-finished products, hot formed, e.g. blooms, billets, slabs (see Note 1),
- bars (see Note 1),
- wire rod,
finished flat products, and
- hammer or drop forgings (see Note 1)
manufactured from the direct hardening alloy steels and the alloy flame- and induction-hardening steels listed in Table 3 and supplied in one of the heat-treatment conditions given for the different types of products in Table 1 and in one of the surface conditions given in Table 2.
The steels are, in general, intended for the manufacture of quenched and tempered or austempered (see 3.2 and Note 2) and flame- or induction-hardened machine parts (see Tables 8 and 9).
The requirements for mechanical properties given in ISO 683-2:2016 are restricted to the sizes given in the relevant Table 8.
NOTE 1 Hammer-forged semi-finished products (blooms, billets, slabs, etc.), seamless rolled rings and hammer-forged bars are in the following covered under semi-finished products or bars and not under the term "hammer and drop forgings".
NOTE 2 For the purposes of simplification, the term "quenched and tempered" is, unless otherwise indicated, used in the following also for the austempered condition.
NOTE 3 For International Standards relating to steels complying with the requirements for the chemical composition in Table 3, however, supplied in other product forms or treatment conditions than given above or intended for special applications, and for other related International Standards, see the Bibliography.
NOTE 4 ISO 683-2 :2016 does not apply to bright products and bars and wire rod for cold heading. For such products, see ISO 683‑18 and ISO 4954.
In special cases, variations in these technical delivery requirements or additions to them can form the subject of an agreement at the time of enquiry and order (see 5.2 and Annex B).
In addition to ISO 683-2:2016, the general technical delivery requirements of ISO 404 are applicable.

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

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation on the meaning of ISO specific terms and expressions related to conformity assessment,

as well as information about ISO’s adherence to the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 683-2:2016(E)
Heat-treatable steels, alloy steels and free-cutting steels —
Part 2:
Alloy steels for quenching and tempering
1 Scope
This part of ISO 683 specifies the technical delivery requirements for
— semi-finished products, hot formed, e.g. blooms, billets, slabs (see Note 1),
— bars (see Note 1),
— wire rod,
— finished flat products, and
— hammer or drop forgings (see Note 1)

manufactured from the direct hardening alloy steels and the alloy flame- and induction-hardening

steels listed in Table 3 and supplied in one of the heat-treatment conditions given for the different types

of products in Table 1 and in one of the surface conditions given in Table 2.

The steels are, in general, intended for the manufacture of quenched and tempered or austempered

(see 3.2 and Note 2) and flame- or induction-hardened machine parts (see Tables 8 and 9).

The requirements for mechanical properties given in this part of ISO 683 are restricted to the sizes

given in the relevant Table 8.

NOTE 1 Hammer-forged semi-finished products (blooms, billets, slabs, etc.), seamless rolled rings and

hammer-forged bars are in the following covered under semi-finished products or bars and not under the term

“hammer and drop forgings”.

NOTE 2 For the purposes of simplification, the term “quenched and tempered” is, unless otherwise indicated,

used in the following also for the austempered condition.

NOTE 3 For International Standards relating to steels complying with the requirements for the chemical

composition in Table 3, however, supplied in other product forms or treatment conditions than given above or

intended for special applications, and for other related International Standards, see the Bibliography.

NOTE 4 This part of ISO 683 does not apply to bright products and bars and wire rod for cold heading. For

such products, see ISO 683-18 and ISO 4954.

In special cases, variations in these technical delivery requirements or additions to them can form the

subject of an agreement at the time of enquiry and order (see 5.2 and Annex B).

In addition to this part of ISO 683, the general technical delivery requirements of ISO 404 are applicable.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the definitions in ISO 377, ISO 4885, ISO 4948-1, ISO 4948-2,

ISO 6929, ISO 14284, and the following apply.

NOTE For deviations from these terms and definitions, see Notes 1 and 2 of Clause 1.

3.1
ruling section
section for which the specified mechanical properties shall apply

Note 1 to entry: Independent of the actual shape and dimensions of the cross-section of the product, the size of its

ruling section is always given by a diameter. This corresponds to the diameter of an “equivalent round bar”. That

is a round bar which will show the same cooling rate as the actual ruling section of the product concerned at its

position for taking the test pieces, when being cooled from austenitizing temperature.
