– bars (see note 1),
– wire rod,
– hot-rolled plates (see note 2), and
– hammer or drop forgings (see note 1)
manufactured from the nitriding steels listed in Table 3 and supplied in one of the heat-treatment conditions given for the different types of products in Table 1, rows 2 to 5, and in one of the surface conditions given in Table 2.
The steels are generally intended for the fabrication of quenched and tempered and, subsequently, nitriding machine parts.
