View Sample Alloy Digest Data Sheet (PDF)

Since 1952, Alloy Digest has been the leading reference for materials property data on metals and alloys used throughout the world. Featuring graphs, charts and tables, these sheets give facts and figures on composition or characterization, physical and mechanical properties, heat treatment, and machinability.

Docol high-strength steels with a microstructure that contains ferrite, which is safe and contributes to good formability; and martensite, which is hard and contributes to the strength of the material. These steels are designed according to their lowest tensile strength. The ZE suffix denotes a zinc coating.

Instant dried milk – Determination of the dispersibility and wettability

Published by: International Organization for Standardization (Technical Standard) / 2014-07-01

ISO/TS 17758|IDF/RM 87:2014 specifies a method for the determination of the dispersibility in water of instant dried milk. The method is applicable to instant dried skimmed milk manufactured by either the "straight-through" or the "re-wet" process and also to instant dried whole milk.

CIE 209:2014

Rationalizing Nomenclature for UV Doses and Effects on Humans

Published by: Commission Internationale de L’Eclairage / 2014-04-17
The field of atmospheric ultraviolet radiation (UV) research is plagued with difficulties in nomenclature. The problems arise from (a) the strong wavelength dependence of UV radiation received at the Earth’s surface, (b) the ad-hoc way disparate groups have approached the subject and (c) the incorrect use of units when action spectra for different UV effects are incorporated. This report highlights some of the issues, taking vitamin-D synthesis, a beneficial effect, as a specific example. Standard vitamin-D dose (SDD) and minimum vitamin-D dose (MDD) are proposed, analogous to the standard erythema dose (SED) and minimum erythema dose (MED) that are in common use for erythema. In recognition of the fact that currently accepted action spectra may be revised in future if new data become available, it is recommended that spectrally resolved irradiance measurements are maintained and continued so that biologically effective irradiances and doses may be reprocessed.

IEC 60871-1 Ed. 4.0 b:2014

Shunt capacitors for a.c. power systems having a rated voltage above 1 000 V – Part 1: General

Published by: International Electrotechnical Commission / 2014-05-22 / 112 pages
IEC 60871-1:2014 is applicable to both capacitor units and capacitor banks intended to be used, particularly, for power-factor correction of a.c. power systems having a rated voltage above 1 000 V and frequencies of 15 Hz to 60 Hz. This part of IEC 60871 also applies to capacitors intended for use in power filter circuits. The object of this part of IEC 60871 is as follows:
– to formulate uniform rules regarding the performance and rating of units and banks, and the testing of units; to formulate specific safety rules;
– to provide a guide for installation and operation. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2005. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
– the overvoltage cycling test has been moved to this standard from the IEC 60871-2;
– the ranges of the standardized values of the highest voltage for equipment have been modified;
– for installations installed on altitudes above 1 000 m a correction factor to all insulation requirements has been introduced;
– new standard insulation tables have been defined. Keywords: capacitor units and capacitor banks, power filter circuits

CSA B45.13-14/IAPMO Z1700-2014

Vacuum waste-collection systems

Published by: CSA Group / 2014-05-01 / 28 pages


This is the first edition of CSA B45.13/IAPMO Z1700, Vacuum waste-collection systems.

This Standard supersedes IAPMO IGC 150-2009, Vacuum Sewage, Grease Waste and/or Condensate Collection Systems.


This Standard covers vacuum waste-collection systems intended to extract and transport water, condensate from refrigerators, sanitary waste, greywater, or grease and specifies requirements for materials, construction, performance testing, and markings.

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and “can” is used to express possibility or capability.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

The values stated in either SI (metric) or inch/pound units are to be regarded as the standard. SI units are the units of record in Canada.

In this Standard, the inch/pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each measurement system are equivalent in application; however, each system is to be used independently. Combining values from the two measurement systems can result in non-conformance with this Standard.

All references to gallons are to U.S. gallons.

ASTM A484/A484M-14

Standard Specification for General Requirements for Stainless Steel Bars, Billets, and Forgings

Published by: ASTM International / 2014-05-01 / 13 pages

1.1 This specification2 covers general requirements that shall apply to wrought stainless steel bars, shapes, forgings, and billets or other semi-finished material (except wire) for forging, under the latest revision of each of the following ASTM specifications: A276, A314, A458, A473, A477, A479/A479M, A564/A564M, A565/A565M, A582/A582M, A638/A638M, A705/A705M, and A831/A831M.

1.2 In the case of conflict between a requirement of a product specification and a requirement of this specification, the product specification shall prevail. In the case of conflict between a requirement of the product specification or a requirement of this specification and a more stringent requirement of the purchase order, the purchase order shall prevail. The purchase order requirements shall not take precedence if they, in any way, violate the requirements of the product specification or this specification; for example, by waiving a test requirement or by making a test requirement less stringent.

1.3 The requirements for introduction of new materials in specifications referencing this specification are given in Annex A1.

1.4 General requirements for flat-rolled stainless steel products other than bar are covered in Specification A480/A480M.

1.5 General requirements for wire products in coils are covered in Specification A555/A555M.

1.6 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

1.7 Unless the order specifies an “M” designation, the material shall be furnished to inch-pound units.
