Standard Hot & Cold Mill Surface Finishes

British and american standards for tolerances, surface finish and testing of stainless steels

The table shows both current and obsolete standards (where these may be of current interest) in the 'Status' column. 'C' is current, 'W' is withdrawn, "S" is superseded for stainless steels, that is the standard was applicable to all steels but there is now a new standard covering stainless steels only. The 'date' is the current publication year.
