Standard ASTM F0256-05R15
1.1 This specification covers two chromium-iron alloys, the former, (UNS K91800), nominally 18 % chromium, balance iron, the latter, (UNS K92801), nominally 28 % chromium, in strip, bar, wire, and rod forms intended primarily for sealing to glass in electronic applications.
Note 1: UNS K92801 should only be considered for use at service temperatures below 300°C. The alloy is prone to sigma phase formation at temperatures close to 620°C, and exhibits brittle mechanical behavior after prolonged exposures at temperatures close to 475°C.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 The following hazard caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Sections This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. and , of this specification.
