A heat number, also called heat code, is a reference for a piece of metal. It provides a traceable record of the batch that the piece came from. The number is used as a tracking method by metal providers and component manufacturers. Thus, the quality and reliability of metals used in an array of manufacturing operations and applications can be ensured.

Material Grade is usually in the form of a letter code, series of letters, or a combination of letters and numbers. It indicates the purpose of use and mechanical properties, as well as chemical composition of a material. The material grade applies to all forms of metals and alloys.

Standards have a place in just about every organization and process humans participate in daily. Standards simplify and safely facilitate various aspects of everyday life. Standardization ensures that products, services, and methods are appropriate for their intended use. It ensures that products and systems are compatible and interoperable, too.

Standards are essential in classifying and evaluating the material, chemical, mechanical, and metallurgical properties of metals. They guide product manufacturers toward correct processing and application procedures.

According to CENCENELEC, “standards provide people and organizations with a basis for mutual understanding and are used as tools to facilitate communication, measurement, commerce and manufacturing. Standards are everywhere and play an important role in the economy.”
