SAE, ASTM Numbering System. (Metalcasting Supplies).

The Unified Numbering System was developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) to create uniformity among metal and alloy identifications. The system provides an easy way to cross-reference the many different numbering systems used to identify metals and alloys in use. It also allows for efficient indexing, record keeping and data storage and retrieval.

The 9th edition includes more than 600 new and revised designations, an updated cross-reference section and an expanded index of common names. It is available as a hardcover book or as a CD-ROM.
