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

Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing – surface remaining after using a mechanical means of dressing a cast surface or a previously thermally dressed surface. Metal Removal Marks Mechanical Dressing.

Metal Removal Marks Welds – indications of welds fully or partially removed by thermal or mechanical dressing. 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.


Expansion Discontinuities – slightly raised surface irregularities. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

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.

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

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Fusion Discontinuities – surface irregularities giving a wrinkled appearance. The casting designer and purchasers can denote the level one to four on the drawings as the requirements of surface quality, then the founder, A8022 Foundry, will check the photos, and learn about the requirements. Non-Metallic Inclusions – Non-metallic material trapped on the surface of castings.

The object of this standard is to facilitate cooperation between founder and casting purchaser in determining the surface conditions, and quality level required.


Surface Texture – the natural surface of the casting sstm shot blasting. The comparator can also be used as the standard of quality inspection.

Visual Inspection Acceptance Criteria. Four levels of acceptance standards are provided.

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. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Gas Porosity – Indications of gas t the casing surface. This practice covers the standard acceptance criteria for the determination of surface texture, surface a8022, and surface discontinuities asm steel castings by visual examination.

Metal Removal Marks Thermal Dressing. Inserts – indications of chaplets sand core supports or internal chills.
