Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Fusion Discontinuities – surface irregularities giving a adtm appearance. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The object of this standard is to facilitate cooperation between founder and casting purchaser in determining the surface conditions, and quality level required. Metal Removal Marks Welds – indications of welds fully or partially removed by thermal asm mechanical dressing. This practice covers the standard acceptance criteria for the determination of surface texture, surface roughness, and surface discontinuities of steel castings by visual examination.


Inserts – indications of chaplets sand core supports or internal chills. Surface Texture – the natural surface of the casting after shot blasting. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Metal Atm Marks Thermal Dressing. Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing – surface remaining after using a mechanical means of dressing a cast surface or a previously thermally dressed surface. The comparator can also be used as the standard of quality inspection. Gas Porosity – Indications of gas t the casing surface.

Visual Inspection Acceptance Criteria. The use of the comparators is superior to methods based on photographs a082 can introduce uncertainties concerning interpretation, particularly with regards o the depth of surface irregularities.

It should assist in avoiding misunderstanding arising from imprecise descriptions at the order stage and should also help in defining a surface that is amendable to a particular techniques of non-destructive testing.

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.


Level A for surface texture, Level B for nonmetallic inclusions, Level C for gas porosity, Level D for solidification discontinuities, Level E for sand expansion discontinuities, Level F for metal inserts, Level G for thermally cut surfaces, Level H for mechanically prepared surfaces, and Level J for welded surfaces.

Expansion Discontinuities – slightly raised surface irregularities. Four levels of acceptance standards are provided.

The casting designer and purchasers can denote the level one to four on the drawings as the requirements of surface quality, then the founder, Dandong Foundry, will check the photos, and learn about the requirements.

Non-Metallic Inclusions – Non-metallic material trapped on the surface of castings. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
