W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., 1 April 2009-A new ASTM International standard will serve as a guide for manufacturers and laboratories that make and test steel products according to standards using the SI system of units. The new standard, ASTM A1058, Test Methods for Mechanical Testing of Steel Products-Metric, arose from a need for a stand-alone metric steel testing standard, according to Lester Burgess, director of quality, TSP/U.S. Bolt Manufacturing, and chair of Subcommittee A01.13 on Mechanical and Chemical Testing and Processing Methods of Steel Products and Processes. The new standard follows a distinctly different format from that of well-known testing standard ASTM A370, Test Methods and Definitions for Mechanical Testing of Steel Products. For example, ASTM A1058 does not include the product annexes found in ASTM A370. ASTM A1058 provides detailed direction for mechanical testing and includes coverage of international standards. The new standard references and cross references international standards such as European Committee for Standardization, the International Organization for Standardization and the Japanese Standards Association. ASTM A1058 was developed by a task group under the direction of Subcommittee A01.13, part of ASTM International Committee A01 on Steel, Stainless Steel and Related Alloys. Committee A01 subcommittees will begin referencing the new standard as it applies to their individual specifications. ASTM International standards are available for purchase from Customer Service (phone: 610-832-9585; service@astm.org) or at www.astm.org. For technical Information, contact Lester Burgess, TSP/U.S. Bolt Manufacturing, Houston, Texas (phone: 713-726-1000; lburgess@tsp-tx.com). Committee A01 meets May 18-22 during May committee week in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. ASTM International welcomes and encourages participation in the development of its standards. ASTM's open consensus process, using advanced Internet-based standards development tools, ensures worldwide access for all interested individuals.
